As I watched the Elevator Repair Service's production of Measure for Measure at the Public Theater the other night, I experienced a blast from the past.

With athletic theatricality and Marx-Brothers-inspired slapstick, the Elevator Repair Service ensemble brings exciting new life to this story of impossible moral choices in 17th-century Vienna. Radical experiments with speed set the play's combination of the comically absurd and the tragically serious in stark relief, and deliver a remarkable new show that marries the company's unique performance style with the Bard's exquisitely lyrical language.
