Measure for Measure-An Off the Shelf Staged Read

choose a different event

Tacoma Little Theatre
210 N "I" St. Tacoma WA 98403


Tacoma Little Theatre's Off the Shelf program presents a workshop performance of Measure for Measure, a drama by William Shakespeare, adapted and directed by Christian Carvajal and read by a "who's who" list of South Sound thespians. The Bard's poetic language has been preserved, with only a few outdated words swapped for modern synonyms. Written around the same time as Othello and King Lear, Measure for Measure has long been regarded as a "problem play," in that its conclusion seems to lack the justice its heroine demands. ("Some rise by sin," Lord Escalus observes, "and some by virtue fall.") The rise of the #MeToo movement makes it painfully clear, however: In the real world, justice for women is an ideal our civilization seldom achieves. A play Shakespeare wrote over 400 years ago can only now be appreciated as his most trenchant commentary on our quest for sociopolitical equality. Measure for Measure features the talents of: Andrew Fry, John Pratt, Andrew Gordon, Xander Layden, Jed Slaughter, Gabriel McClelland, Amanda Stevens, Drew Doyle, Mason Quinn, Chris Serface, Robert McConkey, Cassie Jo Fastabend, Silva Goetz, James Wrede, Jess Allan, and Kathryn Philbrook.
