This musical is a coming-of-age parable, addressing and satirizing the issues and anxieties associated with entering adulthood. The musical is notable for the use of puppets, animated by unconcealed puppeteers, alongside human actors. It won the 2004 Tony Award for Best Musical. Intended for mature audiences only.
Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare
May 13, 14, 19, 20, 21
Measure for Measure is often called one of Shakespeare's problem plays. It was, and continues to be, classified as a comedy, though its tone and setting defy those expectations. The play's main themes include justice and the dichotomy between corruption and purity: "some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall."
