Measure For Measure
INTREPID FRINGE returns to the stage with its timely production of Shakespeare's Measure for Measure.With boundless references to human bondage, this play begs its fresh billing as 50 Shades of Shakespeare.
In a decade of decadence in SteamPunk Vienna, Duke Vincentio abdicates his throne to the severely chaste Lord Angelo, with instructions to exact punishments as he deems fit. But what happens when his pureness comes face-to-face with his own burning lust? And will Isabella bed him to save her brother?
The cast of roughly a dozen will draw characters from the audience in this feverishly paced rendition, set to a soundtrack stretching the spectrum from Nine Inch Nails to Mads Tolling and the Mad Men.
INTREPID FRINGE takes risks. Its theatre from the edge, with an edge. We follow Hamlets advice and hold the mirror up to nature, immersing audiences deep in the world of every play. We seek to inspire theatre-goers to reach beyond norms, employing a unique style that we call meta-cognitive theatre. What does that mean? We want our audiences to experience a play not as spectators, but as spect-actors!
INTREPID FRINGE is a Houston-based theatre company producing Shakespeare and original plays in immersive and interactive formats. hal evans and Tracy Elizabeth Hults are the artistic and managing directors.
With emphasis on making the audience complicit in the story, INTREPID FRINGE builds upon previous success with Macbeth, Winters Tale, King Lear, Everything Must Go, and Julius Caesar.
