RAVES: Now on Amazon & IndieReign.com

BILLY SHAKESPEARE is a spicy little independent film by Deborah Voorhees that imagines what might happen if William Shakespeare tried to make it as a writer in today's Hollywood rather than Elizabethan England. Quirky characters, compromising situations, and the kind of deadpan humor that fans of Waiting For Guffman will recognize collide with hilarious moments of camp to create a madcap world in which young Billy just can't get a break,” writes Ellen Dostal with Broadway World.

“…hilarious campy romp,” says film critic Robert Kirchgassner with The Examiner.

Billy Shakespeare…for any Shakespeare lover should not miss for the world,” writes Germana Maciocci, Italian film and theater critic in The Shakespeare Standard.

“No other Billy like it! He's out of the box!" writes Arje Shaw Broadway playwright and creator of The Sonnet Man Hip Hop Shakespeare Fusion

“Jason D. Johnson's interpretation of the title role is a marvel of emotional complexity. The element of comedy is at once rambunctious and bittersweet,” writes film critic Michael H. Price

“Definitely a future cult movie like Rocky Horror Picture Show,” Sharon Stewart, fan

NOW on Amazon.com and IndieReign.com: What if William Shakespeare never existed... until now? Our Modern Bard is caught in a love triangle of confused sexuality, cross dressing, mistaken identity, and bedroom trysts. Does Shakespeare love his lusty best friend, Wilma Hartford, who's also a drag queen, or his lovely long-time girlfriend Anne Hathaway? Written and directed by Deborah Voorhees.
