The Bard makes his way to ACT! We are proud to present William Shakespeare's MEASURE FOR MEASURE, sponsored by The Excelsior Foundation!
His city caught in a moral free-fall, the Duke of Vienna hands over power to Lord Angelo, who enforces long-dormant codes of chastity with zealous fervor.  When a pious young nun pleads for the life of her condemned brother, Angelo’s response is surprisingly sensual—revealing a web of desire, deception and hypocrisy that infects every corner of society. Shakespeare’s darkest comedy tackles the twin evils of power and corruption with humor, giving hope to the hopeless and courage to the powerless, making it perhaps the most modern and relevant of Shakespeare's social comedies.
