From the show:
The Duke of Vienna vanishes abruptly leaving Lord Angelo as his successor. In his stead, Angelo enacts his own sense of justice causing mass chaos throughout the city.

See it if you want to take advantage of seeing small theaters and unknown actors doing a creditable job of putting on a timely play by Shakespeare.
Don't see it if you're disinclined to see unknown actors performing in small venues.
See it if you want to be at the edge of your seat as the drama unfolds. Superbly cast. Every single element contributes to the overall effect.
Don't see it if you think you can't last without an intermission.
