Measure for Measure
Shakespeare’s text adapted with a view of creating space for director Suzanne Lantagne’s highly personal theatrical language of movement and music.
Premiered by THEATRE 1774 in February, 1993. Directed by Suzanne Lantagne.
“It takes a production like Theatre 1774’s Measure for Measure to remind us that Shakespeare really deserves his place at the head of the English literary canon.Brilliantly directed by Suzanne Lantagne, Measure for Measure is a delight from beginning to end: aurally, visually, emotionally and intellectually.”
SusannSchutta, Hour, 18 February 1993.
“a most intriguing Shakespeare. If you like your Shakespeare spiced with Growtowski and Arrabel, you’ll be fascinated by the Theatre 1774 production. This is a Measure redolent of today’s headlines and audiences can use it as a Rohrshack test.”
StanleyAsher, The Montreal Downtowner, 17 February 1993.
