See it if you're open to non-tradl WS. MFM's set in NOLA w all-WOC cast. Most do justice to the text, making sense of the prob play (except for end).
Don't see it if you want high prodn values. Barebones. But gr music/lots of energy. Duke is a standout! Resonates in MeToo era. Unclear resoln for Isabel.
See it if you’d like a fast, clear, fun lesson in the abuse of power, courtesy of 1 of the Bard’s notorious problem plays.
Don't see it if you want your Shakespeare straight: This production has a lot fun & presents a clear lesson, sacrificing a bit of depth in the process.
"No One Is Innocent on Mardi Gras: Morals are especially relative in a new production of Shakespeare’s play, set in New Orleans amid the anarchy of Fat Tuesday, 1979."
"1979's Rebellious Mardi Gras Inspires Mobile Unit's 'MEASURE FOR MEASURE'"
"As performed by a cast made up entirely of women of color, it would seem to be the last word in trendy concepts; instead, I think, it gets closer to the play's diamond-hard core than possibly any other I have seen."
Score: 98% "This all-female cast is not backing down. They are out to entertain and roar! Hear them roar! And they are having as much fun as we are! This cast is a powerhouse of women."
