A pub crawl in the spirit of Shakespeare will hit Skillman Avenue tomorrow, with a range of short performances planned at multiple locales on the stretch.

Performers from the Queens-based Titan Theatre Company will pay homage to Shakespeare’s greatest works, including his classic speeches, scenes, and his many references to drinking, in 30-minute shows.

The theater company will begin at The Globe Tavern at 3 p.m., and make its way through establishments like Dog and Duck, Claret, PJ Horgan’s, Stray Vintage, and more. Some impromptu and kid friendly performances will also be sprinkled through the day.

The event was organized along with the Skillman Project, a group of bars and restaurants along the avenue, to raise funds for a local food bank.

A $5 minimum donation in either cash or a non-perishable food is required for interested spectators. Participating locales are also offering food and drink specials.

I went to a few of the stops to see how this was going to be and I was pleasantly surprised. The cast did an amazing job at making Shakespeare fun. They had a decent crowd following them from bar to bar as well. Great job all around!

How about hiring bartenders who can make a good mixed drink? I’ve basically stopped going out for drinks because I’m tired of asking for a dry martini and getting a glass of vermouth.

Have you ever seen some of the creatures that inhabit these bars? none of them will be paying attention.

Roberto: your comments are bigoted and above all ignorant. Just because the last time you read a book was 4th grade don’t judge everyone else. I love Shakespeare and have no trust fund. Turn the Yankee game off for one night and try something new. Oh yeh, reading the NY Post doesn’t count as trying something new.
