Shakespeare in the Park
If you stop and think about it, it is pretty incredible that audiences still enjoy Shakespeare’s plays over 400 years after they were first written and performed. The ongoing popularity of Shakespeare’s work is probably due to his uncanny ability to present meaningful and lasting themes in an entertaining way. One of his most famous comedies, Measure for Measure, will be performed at Northside Park on September 19 at 7:30 pm. This gorgeous outdoor performance space is just 5 minutes from the Fenwick Inn. Measure for Measure is one of Shakespeare’s darker plays and makes the audience really reflect on the importance of justice, especially when those meant to dispense justice are corrupt themselves. This performance, featuring a stellar traveling troupe directed by Kyler Taustin, captures all the intrigue that Shakespeare intended over 400 years ago. You will not want to miss your chance to see this timeless classic performed live.
