Measure for Measure

 


Acclaimed experimental theatre company Elevator Repair Service returns to the Public Theater with a unique spin on the Bard’s comedy.

The Off-Broadway production of Measure for Measure closed November 12, 2017. For current Off-Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

From the producers: Justice, mercy and political corruptness are at the center of Shakespeare's dark comedy "Measure for Measure." A corrupt governor offers the beautiful young nun, Isabella, a choice: her virtue or her brother's life.

Elevator Repair Service (ERS) is a New York-based theater ensemble founded by director John Collins and a group of actors in 1991. ERS has performed in various New York City venues, as well as elsewhere in the United States, and in Europe, Australia, and Asia. Today its work combines elements of slapstick, literary and found texts, found objects and the group’s unique choreographic style.

The ERS ensemble brings its singular approach to "Measure For Measure" in this all-new staging featuring athletic theatricality and Marx Brothers-inspired slapstick. The cast is made up of Rinne Groff, Lindsay Hockaday, Maggie Hoffman, Mike Iveson, Vin Knight, April Matthis, Gavin Price, Greig Sargeant, Scott Shepherd, Pete Simpson and Susie Sokol.

What is the Public Theater? Founded in 1954 by the legendary showman Joseph Papp, the Public Theater is one of NYC'c preeminent non-profit theaters. Dedicated to the development of new plays and musicals, the theater has spawned many Broadway shows (including "A Chorus Line" and the original Off Broadway production of "Hamilton") and has 40 Tony Awards to its credit.
