Review – Measure for Measure @ Winter Garden Theatre

Intro

On the brisky- cold night that was February 17 of 2017.. I, along with a dear friend of mine that needs no introduction, hit Winter Garden Theatre for a Shakespearean play titled, β€œMotion for Motion.” And allow me to prematurely say, Groundling Theatre Company definitely knows how to put on a show. A lot happened before though, so we’re going to back track to the beginning of my Friday evening. Note that the play was scheduled for 7:30pm.

We figured we would catch the light festival after the show, as it was scheduled to be running until 11:00pm.

The architectural design of the Young Centre for Performing Arts is absolutely beautiful. From the outside, it looks like a building that belongs in the vintage-looking Distillery District, all while maintaining a modern finish. Once entering a pair of two wooden/glass windowed doors, we were welcomed with wooden tables and chairs, a fireplace, a bar, and of course the box office.

The building was alive. Bartenders graciously pouring drinks for guests, couples enjoying their valentines day night out- as soon as I walked in I felt full of energy and anticipation, hoping to get our hands on tickets to watch the highly spoken upon play turned T.V. show, Kim’s Convenience.
