About the Show

Virtuosic performer Rick Miller brings you 85% of the Bard’s original text delivered by over 50 familiar voices from The Simpsons. This sublimely silly multi-media update of Shakespeare’s chilling tragedy has been a smash hit with sell-out crowds across North America and around the globe.

“If you miss this treat, slap your head and go D’OH!”
– Vancouver Sun




This engagement of Rick Miller is a DC Performing Arts Presenters Initiative project, which is made possible through funding by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program.
