Measure for Measure
photo

 by William Shakespeare
directed by Reid Edelman

Hoping to restore propriety to his debauched dukedom, Duke Vincentio appoints Angelo as his  deputy to clean up Vienna. Under Angelo's watchful eye, old laws against sexual impropriety and lewd behavior are newly enforced.  But can Angelo live up to his own high standards?  This dark and unsettling comedy explores the layers of corruption and hypocrisy that may lurk beneath public righteousness.  Featuring original music and a modern neon-lit setting.
