On a dark and stormy night, a mysterious group of strangers -- including a governor, a sheriff and a couple of doltish workers -- lands in a rural tavern under bizarre circumstances. What follows is a hilarious comedy of errors that's perfect for fans of witty farces like Noises Off! Shakespeare Orange County veteran leading men John Walcutt (Richard III, Macbeth) and Bo Foxworth (Hamlet) lead a cast of crazies in this classic mystery-comedy from Broadway legend George M. Cohan.

The venue was nice. I enjoyed the open theater atmosphere though you could hear a background/traffic noise when it gets loud.
The play itself was a bit disappointing. The acting and the production was a little amateurish.
I hope that there be a better production in this venue because it's nice for OC to have its own mini LA Greek Theater or Hollywood Bowl.
Measure for Measure
is the Bard’s dark political comedy about government hypocrisy, the tightening of rules regarding sexual conduct (even in private), and “law and disorder”. Big Brother is at its best in Measure for Measure — but remember, it’s a comedy, and in the end “all’s well that ends well.”
