The Drilling Company—famous for its Shakespeare in the Parking Lot productions—presents a series of free Shakespeare performances in Bryant Park. Already having wrapped up productions of Much Ado About Nothing and As You Like It, the series closes out with 10 performances of Measure for Measure taking place during the first half of September. This “jazz-infused production” takes the original play set in Vienna and transforms it to a modern-day interpretation in New Orleans where lead character Vincentio is the city’s first black mayor.
