Hamlet Isn't Dead Presents MEASURE FOR MEASURE

Shakespeare has never felt more alive than with Hamlet Isn't Dead's Measure for Measure. This timely tragicomedy has laughter, live music, and lessons galore. Whether you're a literary scholar or a literal first-time viewer, there's something for everyone at this tremendous event.

The city of Vienna is thrown into disarray when the lackadaisical Duke Vincentio leaves the hard-hearted Angelo in charge. Suddenly, ancient laws are being reenacted, and those who would have gone unpunished are facing the most serious consequences. Who will see justice and who will learn mercy? Where on this spectrum of extremes does hope lie? Only time, and a little scheming, will tell.

Join them for the full Shakespearean dive bar experience at El Barrio's Artspace, with hot takes, cold drinks, stand-up comedy, and live music. It's a tale for our time told the only way they know how. Reserve your seats for measure after measure of this incredible story.
