MEASURE FOR MEASURE

Genre: Classical, Comedy, Drama
William Shakespeare, Directed by Stephen Stout

Fresh from a successful run of their rock-and-roll, hipster TWELFTH NIGHT at the KIRK THEATRE on Theatre Row, NYNEO presents a wickedly comic, site-specific FREE production of Shakespeare’s most controversial play. The Duke of Vienna skips town leaving his second-in-command free to outlaw sexual misconduct. A young man is arrested and sentenced to death for fornication, and his only hope of survival is his sister giving up her virginity.

And she's a nun.

NYNEO’s MEASURE FOR MEASURE is a darkly funny comedy about corruption and mercy, monks and pimps, and finding love and lust in the places we least expect.

All performed outdoors FOR FREE in a magical East Village setting.
