Cheek by Jowl and Pushkin Theatre’s Measure for Measure is here for one week only, departing the ArtsEmerson stage on Sunday, OCT 28 and local critics and audiences are urging Boston to catch this show while it’s here! After opening last night, this production has been met with immense praise from critics and audience members alike.
“Performed entirely in Russian on a stage bare except for four, enormous, red cubes, this modern interpretation has a stark beauty and a fluid physical presentation that transcends the need to understand the language.” – Theatre Mirror
“This is a unique and fast moving production that should not be missed. ArtsEmerson is giving Boston theatre goers a gift. Accept and enjoy it.” – Boxing Over Broadway
“It’s only here until Sunday, but you absolutely must make time” – @_ChrisEhlers
“The best production of Measure For Measure I have ever seen.” – Joyce Kulhawik
“Streamlined to just under two hours without intermission, Shakespeare’s play seems fresher than ever in the era of Weinstein and #MeToo. It truly almost feels like a newly written work.” – EDGE Boston
“If you love theater, see this show…simmering, electric, emotional. It’s Shakespeare made vital and startling.” – Jared Bowen, WGBH Arts Editor
Measure for Measure is only here through THIS Sunday, OCT 28 and it’s evident that this is not a production to be missed. Join ArtsEmerson a the Emerson Cutler Majestic for one of the best productions of Measure for Measure to come to Boston before it’s gone!
