“A must see” – Jennifer, audience member
Don’t miss the extraordinary and joyous comedy Measure for Measure as the critically-acclaimed Pop-up Globe production tours to theatres across New Zealand this winter.
Experience Moulin Rouge, Shakespeare-style with this all-singing, all-dancing cast as they take a wild romp through the seedy streets of 17th century Vienna, meeting larger-than-life characters who will charm you even as they pick your pocket. In a city of brothels, louche lads-about-town and illegitimate children, the mayor and a young nun meet in private. She wants to save her brother’s life. He is happy to help – but at what price?
Featuring beautiful bespoke Jacobean costumes, a specially designed touring set that recreates the beautiful scenic design of Pop-up Globe Auckland and the extraordinary lively performances of Shakespeare’s masterworks by a highly-experienced cast that have won the company awards across Australasia, including eight theatre awards in Sydney last year.
Enjoy a wild and hilarious night out, directed by Pop-up Globe’s Artistic Director Miles Gregory. This production is not to be missed!
