Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare, 2/28, 2/29, and 3/1

Tickets are still available for The Experimental Theater of Vassar College production of Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare, co-directed by Shona Tucker and Darrell James.

Please join us at one of these three performances:

  • Tuesday, February 28th at 8:00pm
  • Wednesday, February 29th at 8:00pm
  • Thursday, March 1st at 8:00pm

 In The Martel Theater (located inside the Vogelstein Center for Drama and Film)

This production is open to the campus and the general public.

A note from the Dramaturg,  Emily MacLeod '12:

Plays today are rarely forced into genres of comedy, tragedy and history the way Shakespeare's were. As Shakespeare's last comedy (based on the classical definition), Measure for Measure is ahead of its time, blending humor and pathos with passion and intensity.  The 'problems' are what makes it a play more resonant with our world today than it was four hundred years ago.
