Subject: Times Square Stripper Measure for Measure
Diane Paulus and Randy Weiner, directors of the wonderful The Donkey
Show: A Midsummer Nihgt's Disco, sent me an invitation for a sneak
preview of their new production of Measure for Measure (just two sceens
in preview, 1.2. and 3.3). I take it the production will open in April.
The flier reads
The 'Show World" Reunion Show featuring the ex-employees of Show World
including your favorite ****LIVE GIRLS**** In a rendition of Shakespeare
as you've never seen it.
Show World was a strip club right across from Port Authority on 42nd
st. It was closed by Guiliani. Ducke Vincentio will be read, I take it,
as a kind of Viennese Guiliani.
Should be a lot more interesting than the stripper Macbeth that is still
going on in Florida.
