Goodman Theatre performs a classic play with a twist when Shakespeare's intricate Measure for Measure
is brought to life in Robert Falls' daring new production. This darkly humorous take on the timeless issues of hypocrisy and political power proves once again the enduring quality of Shakespeare's work. With his city falling into moral decay, Duke Vincentio hands over power to Lord Angelo, a morally upright deputy who sets out to enforce the law with ferocity. This experiment proves the inevitable truth that power corrupts, as Angelo succumbs to the temptation to abuse his newfound authority. When a young woman and her brother are put in danger by his lust and arrogance, the old Duke must step back in to set things right.
