Bare Theatre Brings Unique Brand of Shakespeare

  • Shakespeare is coming to Franklin Street as the Bare Theatre continues its tenth season with the comedy Measure for Measure. Though the play is chocked full of humor and innuendo, it is referred to as a comedy by Renaissance standards because it does not have a tragic ending. Measure for Measure is anything but dated, however. Measure deals with very contemporary themes of sex and desire, and raises questions about the separation of church and state - taboo during the Renaissance. Bare Theatre brings Measure to Measure, its 21st Shakespeare title, to the historic Varsity Theatre in downtown Chapel Hill with performances March 19-21, 26-28, and April 2-4. All performances begin at 7:30 PM. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit
