WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Elevator Repair Service, the Obie Award-winning company behind Gatz and Arguendo, celebrate their 25th season with a dynamic new production of Shakespeare's Measure for Measure at the Public Theater. With athletic theatricality and Marx Brothers-inspired slapstick, the ERS ensemble brings exciting new life to this story of impossible moral choices in 17th-century Vienna. Radical experiments with speed set the play's combination of the comically absurd and the tragically serious in stark relief — and deliver a remarkable new show that marries the company's unique performance style with the Bard's exquisitely lyrical language. ERS founder and artistic director John Collins directs.
