Measure for Measure (Shakespeare in the Park)
Opening Night: June 6, 2011
Closing: July 30, 2011
Theater: Delacorte Theatre
Measure for Measure sweeps from the corridors of national power to the intimate confines of the bedroom, and from the convent’s chapel to the executioner’s block. It is Shakespeare at his grittiest: a bracing and bawdy glimpse of what happens when those in power allow their basest human impulses to range unchecked.
