Measure 4 Measure

Regime change is coming to a decadent Vienna: the Duke’s gone AWOL, and in his place sits a joyless man determined to take back the city. His first order of business? Executing a man whose only crime is love. When the pious Isabella comes to plead for her brother’s life, she soon finds that unyielding morality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and that human appetite is not so easily controlled. This dark comedy is one of Shakespeare’s most modern plays, full of eccentric characters and wild surprises.


Please join RPCVLA for an annual summer tradition – Shakespeare under the stars in Griffith Park!

Bring a picnic and a blaket or low chair. We will aim to save seating stage right near the concession stand. Look for the RPCVLA banner or call Miki at 562-537-8583.

  • We encourage your consideration of those around you! Low seat beach chairs (legs lower than 3″) are welcome behind our chair line. The lower area closest to the stage is reserved for those with picnic blankets.
  • As a courtesy to those around you, we ask you to leave your four-legged friends at home.
  • We welcome children at our performances! However, these are not Shakespeare performances edited or changed for children. Shakespeare wrote about the human experience, and his plays include examples of sexuality and violence, and deal with adult themes. Email us and we’ll be happy to answer any specific questions you may have about particular performances. And please, keep your children with you at all times.
  • There is an uphill walk from the parking areas to our performance site. If you have mobility challenges, please call us at 818-710-6306 to make arrangements.
  • Don’t forget your picnic! (Note: alcohol is prohibited in Los Angeles City parks.)
  • Dress in layers as it gets chilly in the evening.
  • We have a concessions tent with hot and cold beverages, sweets treats from The Village Bakery & Café (a local Atwater Village small business), kettle corn, light snacks and Habey’s Shakes (“The Bard of Shortbread” cookies baked in NYC especially for Independent Shakespeare Co.) Cash and credit cards accepted.
  • You may find that bug spray and sunscreen are also helpful to bring with you.
  • Parking – Ample free parking is available.  Look for the hot pink signs directing you to the parking lots near the Merry-Go-Round. Parking lot 2 is the closest to the performance site, but be prepared for a bit of a walk up a hill.
