For nearly two decades, the Bird-on-a-Cliff Theater has been producing the Woodstock Shakespeare Festival, transporting modern New York to 17th-century England via the outdoor Elizabethan stage on the pastoral Comeau Property, dubbed “Woodstock’s Central Park.” This year’s feature is “Measure for Measure,” directed by Gordon W. Brown. Claudio and Juliet’s budding family is brought to a halt in this dramatic comedy, interrupted by politics, religion, family, and friends. Shakespeare’s problem play balances suspense and humor throughout the chaos. Performances run through September 2 on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 5pm. Blankets, chairs, and picnics are encouraged.
