From George Washington to Watergate, from the Bering Strait to Baghdad, “The Complete History of America (abridged): Election Edition” offers a 90-minute rollercoaster ride through the glorious quagmire of American history. The Reduced Shakespeare Company cheerfully run riot over 500 years of politics, at home and abroad—reminding us that it’s not the length of your history that matters—it’s what you’ve done with it. According to the Washington Post, “the trio’s nimble tongues, rubber-limbed pratfalls, and obvious street-performer smarts make this a merry, nose-tweaking outing.”
