Shakespeare's "Measure for Measure" by New York Classical Theatre

“Well, heaven forgive him! and forgive us all!
Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall” 

~William Shakespeare, "Measure for Measure"

Here are some reportage drawings from this summer's staging of "Measure for Measure" by New York Classical Theater at the Battery Park. This is their 16th season, and if you haven't been lucky yet to catch one of their performances (which are free to attend, and take place in Manhattan and Brooklyn parks), the best way to describe them is to quote The New York Times: "a movable feast! All the park's a stage!"

In New York Classical Theater's panoramic productions,  the audience is prompted to get up and follow actors to a new location  about every 10 minutes or so. It's such a fun way of experiencing classical plays! The actors are hysterical, the costumes are beautiful, and Shakespeare is...timeless.

Check out upcoming performances on New York Classical Theater's site.


“Our doubts are traitors and make us loose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt"

~William Shakespeare, "Measure for Measure"


Music oft hath such a charm
To make bad good, and good provoke to harm."

~William Shakespeare, "Measure for Measure"
