Measure for Measure

William Shakespeare

Measure for Measure

The Vakhtangov, on the Arbat, is at the heart of Moscow both geographically and theatrically. From humble beginnings in 1913, this company, which began in basements and front rooms, grew to inhabit one of Moscow’s most beautiful theatres. Always following the twin influences of Meyerhold and Stanislavsky, of spectacle and psychological truth, it has created many of Russia’s most respected productions. This is their first visit to the UK. 4.0 out of 5 based on 1 reviews

The Guardian

Michael Billington

A predominantly young company delivers this difficult play with vigour and adjusts to the unique demands of the Globe space by acknowledging the audience without pandering to them.
