Measure for Measure

Artistic Director: Stephen Burdman - Voice/Speech Coach: Joan Melton

New York Classical Theatre's actors lead audiences on a wonderful waterfront ramble around Pier 1. As an added bonus, the roving production is free, in the tradition of al fresco summer Shakespeare that flourishes in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Luckily for playgoers, these are masterful actors who can command the audience's attention without microphones or a stage in the middle of the great outdoors—even when helicopters hover overhead, as one did in the middle of Wednesday night's performance. They bring Shakespeare's work to life with verve and skill—and a handful of flashlights, held by theatre staffers, which serve as spotlights when darkness falls.
