Shakespeare in McMichael Park
July 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Coming to McMichael Park, Thursday, July 11, 2019. The Friends of McMichael Park will be hosting our 12th year of Shakespeare in the park with Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company’s production of Shakespeare’s MEASURE TO MEASURE. Mary Ann Baldwin is back at the helm, after a 2 year hiatus, as artistic director. We will help kick off their summer tour with a performance in East Falls. Attached is CCTC’s Press Release, with more details about the show this year.
Set in a world, much like our own, in which the corrupt exist side-by-side with the virtuous, Measure for Measure, one of Shakespeare’s mature dark comedies, explores conflicts between the powerful and the powerless, justice and injustice, love and lust, and, as always in Shakespeare, the danger and hypocrisy posed by those who “seem” to be what they are not.
