About the Show

This modern reimagining "Measure for Measure" is an exploration of lust, power, and corruption, where everyone is willing to gamble their morality, risk their soul for sin, and sacrifice the innocent in the name of justice. ​

Modest production values, Range of acting abilities, Ambitious, Heavily edited (to good effect), Uneven directorial choices

See it if you like non-tradl takes on WS. Set in dystopian future, M4M has many gd moments. Text is cut; sh know main plot beforehd. Nice tiny theater

Don't see it if you need a uniformly talented cast. Standouts are Angelo, Claudio, Lucio; the women don't do as well. Isabella, slow down! Duke, quiet down! Read more

See it if This is a modern remake of Shakespeare's measure for measure. I felt the acting was okay however the play was long at times.

Don't see it if You prefer a more fast-paced show Read more

“Shockingly relevant, even in a mixed-bag production...Brown’s actors give sturdy but never revelatory performances, and some scenes feel more emotionally varied and urgent than others...Brown’s technology-heavy interpretation feels competent but never fully realized. iPads and Skype sessions work fine to tell the story, but it’s not clear whether they serve as a nod to Vienna’s surveillance state, a commentary on our distance from one another, or just a quick fix for a small stage."
