Measure for Measure, by William ShakespeareMeasure for Measure Thumbnail

Pre-recorded performance

"Haste still pays haste, and leisure answers leisure; Like doth quit like, and measure still for measure." (Act V, Scene I)

In all Shakespeare’s canon, "Measure for Measure" is among one of the most passionately discussed plays. This play deals with power and its abuse; with morality and its corruption; with sexual harassment and its damage; and, with basic fairness and how it’s manipulated: "some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall."

We invite those of you who were unable to attend a live performance the opportunity to view a pre-recorded performance of Measure for Measure. You can view the recording here. (Please note that the recording does not play automatically. You will need to click the triangle play button at the bottom of your screen.)

We hope you enjoy the performance. We look forward to being back on the Main Stage in the fall and hope to see you all there for another great season.

If you would like to make a lasting and transformative contribution to our program, please consider donating to the Upstate Theatre Fund.
