The comedy The Complete History of America (Abridged) by Adam Long, Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor opens at The Laboratory Theater of Florida on Dec. 3 and runs until Dec. 19.
Witness 600 years of history in 90 minutes… history will never be the same. This fast-paced comedy is American history on speed, offering a 90-minute roller coaster ride to remind us that it’s not the length of your history that matters – it’s what you’ve done with it.
Artistic director Annette Trossbach says, “History has never been this fun. Or so very deliciously butchered! This roller-coaster ride will both entertain and educate as it travels through the ‘great experiment’ that is the United States.”
“I love comedy. I don’t love history and politics. But poking fun at history and politics? That’s why I chose to direct this show. Our ability to laugh at ourselves and our history levels the playing field. It allows us to deal with the uncomfortable and challenging things we are facing today, even if it’s only for 90 minutes at a time,” says director Heather Johnson.
Performance dates are Dec. 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18 at 8 p.m. and Dec. 5, 12, 18 and 19 at 2 p.m. Half price previews will be presented Dec. 1 and 2 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $30 each or $10 for students with valid student IDs. There are two half-priced previews on Dec. 1st and 2nd, and there is a new Thursday night special ticket price of $25 each for adults. Seating is socially distant and limited for safety. Masks are required to be worn when inside the theater.
For tickets, call the box office at 239-218-0481 or online at
The Laboratory Theater of Florida is located at 1634 Woodford Ave. in Fort Myers.
