How was your experience?
I was very surprised to see a full rendition of Shakespeare's Measure for Measure. It was an adapted version but roughly half of it was from the original script. The other half was newly written and done for the new setting of the story in Native American country. The story in this new version made perfect sense. It highlighted the hardships and injustices inflicted upon Native Americans and the prevalent racism while perfectly retaining the original drama/comedy. I did find the constant changes in writing style a bit jarring. It was like listening to Mozart interspersed with hip hop. However, overall I really enjoyed the play. G.H.
