Shakespeare Party: Measure for Measure is a week from tonight (Wednesday)! Can’t wait to see your beautiful faces there!
We’ve pre-cast the five biggest roles, to give them a chance to look over their parts a bit before the night. We are so happy to announce: DUKE VINCENTIO will be played by noted local puppeteer, comedian and co-artistic director of “Shakesprov”, the improvised Shakespeare show, AMY “ZING” GRAY.
You may have seen our ANGELO as the highly logical, expressively eyebrowed Mr. Spock of PDX hit “Trek in the Park”, but when he kicks off his shoes and gets real, he’s just plain old lovable JESSE GRAFF.
Our ISABELLA is fresh from her run as Lady Anne in Portland Actors Ensemble’s delicious Richard III—yes, it’s the charming and gifted ALLIE RANGEL.
The lovable fop LUCIO will be played by a puppeteer and actor who you will be able to see next month in Tears of Joy’s “The Tell-Tale Heart”, the rakishly handsome JON PLUEARD.
Finally, what story would be complete without a pimp? Our pimp of the night, POMPEY, will be presented by that master of Shakespeare, veteran actor of the Original Practice Shakespeare Festival, your friend and mine, MEGAN MURPHY RUCKMAN.
