Measure for Measure

Online Stream

Virtue and vice collide-and lust and the law are inextricably entwined-in Goodman Artistic Director Robert Falls' daring revival of Shakespeare's dark comedy. 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 reveals a web of desire, deception and hypocrisy that infects every corner of society. Falls' production of Measure for Measure (March 9 - April 14, 2013) was hailed as "audacious, arresting (and) highly amusing" (Chicago Tribune) with "vice ooz(ing) from the very walls the comedy roars...never in the history of this play has such a raw and raucous production been seen" (Newcity).
