The Filament Theatre Ensemble's boisterous comedy is a sort of cross between The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and an improv jam. A cast of three men and one woman mash up snippets of Shakespeare, using audience suggestions to guide the hour-long performance. Viewers, for example, decide whether the play getting slapped together onstage should end happily or tragically. The gimmick yields a pretty weak product and the improv isn't all it could be. But the actors are skilled at physical humor and at speaking blank verse, and the venue--a basement-level Wrigleyville bar that once housed a cutting-edge performance space, Club Lower Links--is hospitable to this informal, indulgent party show. --Albert Williams
