What I liked

A fresh and relevant take on Measure for Measure, fun and accessible and in the park! Things to expect: An all-female energetic cast playing all of the characters, donations to Planned Parenthood, Gwen Stefani lyrics, shuffling cards, accidentally kissing another audience member in a game of “Suck or Blow,” pretending to be pregnant.

What I didn't like

I recommend reviewing the plot …especially the original ending… to fully appreciate the “game” and the stakes at the end of the story, and your role as Juliet taking back autonomy.

My overall impression

Love this experiment in the park, and engaging with Shakespeare’s text as a game… excited to see the next iteration!
