Genre: Classical, Comedy
By William Shakespeare, Adapted by Doug Silver & Directed by Andrew Frank

From Doug Silver and Andrew Frank, the team behind the critically acclaimed MACBETH: A WALKING SHADOW, comes a fresh look at one of William Shakespeare's most enigmatic plays. The duo has transformed MEASURE FOR MEASURE: PROVIDE YOUR BLOCK AND AXE into a 70-minute, exhilarating treatise on hypocrisy, love and the line between them. Set amid the backdrop of a modern-day dance club, the adaptation is equal parts sensual and humorous.

In January, Mr. Silver and Mr. Frank's vivid adaptation, MACBETH: A WALKING SHADOW, was a sold out smash hit. called it "one of the best Shakespeare productions I've seen" while lauded it as "an interpretation you will not want to miss".

MEASURE FOR MEASURE: PROVIDE YOUR BLOCK AND AXE features many of the stars from MACBETH: A WALKING SHADOW -- Ato Essandoh, Lex Woutas, Meghan Reilly, Ridley Parson and James Edward Becton -- alongside Fiona Jones, John-Andrew Morrison, Jon Ecklund and Dave Koenig.
