"...Measure For Measure is commonly called one of Shakespeare's problem plays, partly because the Duke uses questionable tactics to push everyone towards a contrived ending. In this viewer's opinion, Falls' additions do little to make better sense of the story. One distraught character puts a gun to his head, another seems to have a cutting disorder, a stabbing incident emerges randomly, a disco dance line suddenly breaks out. Overall, though, the excellent cast-and especially the finely wrought performances by Escalante and Whittaker--hold steady even when the concept struggles to keep a plausible beat."
