Brown Box Theatre Project’s 2019 free Shakespeare tour fulfills the company’s mission to deliver professional, impactful theatre directly to communities that otherwise lack access to the performing arts, and to break down barriers that separate potential audiences from live theatre. In an ongoing effort to reinvent the way theatre is created and consumed, each performance will transform a public space into a vibrant cultural and tourist destination, activating public spaces into creative spaces and encouraging community through accessible arts programming.
“Measure for Measure" is hauntingly relevant to today's society in its portrayals of power, corruption, abuse of law, and misguided expectations surrounding gender roles. "Measure for Measure" questions what happens when corruption reaches the highest level of court. Explore the price of principle, and witness what happens when the law is bent by those who serve to uphold it. All "Measure for Measure" performances are free, outdoors, and open to all audiences; no tickets are needed. Lawn seating, blankets and lawn chairs welcome. Please visit www.brownboxtheatre.org for full performance schedule and rain locations. Due to mature themes this show is recommended for ages 13 and older with the advisory of a parent.
