The Brown Box Theatre Project is back with Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure

DELMARVA PENINSULA — This morning on Good Morning Delmarva, our very own Erica Murphy sat down with Kyler Taustin to talk about the Brown Box Theatre’s upcomng project, Measure for Measure. Kyler, who is the co-founder and Executive Artistic Director of the Brown Box Theatre Project is a Delmarva native and wants to bring the arts to the community he grew up in; the communities that lack cultural opportunities.

Kyler started the Brown Box Theatre Project nine years ago after college. They are year-round company that tours three full-scale classical and contemporary productions to 35 different communities in Massachusetts and Delmarva, reaching over 7,000 audience members annually. This year will be no exception with the production of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure. 

The production is a timeless — and timely — tale of power, corruption, virtue, and honor that you wouldn’t want to miss. Kyler says, “Measure for Measure questions what happens when corruption reaches the highest level of court. He says ,”Measure for Measure will be fully staged in each location, and will feature professional artists, designers, and actors.”

You’re in luck because the first date of the Delmarva tour starts tomorrow, August 29th, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in Selbyville, Delaware. It will take place at Freeman Stage on 31750 Lake View Dr. If you can’t make tomorrow’s date, the Black Box Theatre will be putting on 17 more shows here on the Delmarva Peninsula in many different towns including: Salisbury, Ocean City, Dover, Princess Anne and the list goes on.

Don’t worry about the price, all Shakespeare productions put on by the Brown Box Theatre are free. If you’re interested in the arts and theatre, make you way to a local production of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure. For information on a production near you, you can visit their website at
