With a plot that could have been ripped from today’s headlines, Measure for Measure reveals that political corruption, sex scandals, hypocrisy, and anti-vice laws are not a new preoccupation and that the people charged with enforcing virtue are only incorruptible while they remain untempted. This all-female staging of Shakespeare’s provocative comedy transports the story to a Weimar-era cabaret where music, dance, and titillation illuminate Measure for Measure’s clash between lust and law.
