Can Shakespeare truly resonate with contemporary audiences? When the comedy of “Measure for Measure” features corrupt politicians, sexual harassment and hypocritical abuses of power, the NOLA Project’s rendition often bears a ripped-from-the-headlines aura.
Aditi Kapil and Liz Engelman are digging up ways to breathe life into some of Shakespeare’s (ahem) “mustier” laugh lines for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s “Play On! 36 playwrights translate Shakespeare” project. Aditi and Liz talk about teaming up on Measure for Measure, and the problem with Pompey’s posthumous punch-lines.
