Blackstone Audio is proud to present the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s production of Measure for Measure, Shakespeare’s compelling tragicomedy that explores restraint—and lack thereof.
Who legislates morality? The duke’s authoritarian deputy, Angelo, is hell-bent on stamping out moral decay. He reactivates outdated draconian laws and aims his arrogant crosshairs at a young man whose fiancée is pregnant, sentencing him to death. Angelo is sternly incorruptible—until he meets Isabela, a beautiful religious novice whose desirability arouses him.
Flavored with live music by the mariachi band Las Colibri, this vigorous, modern production of Shakespeare’s play reveals what can happen when sex, religion, and politics collide.
"[Artistic Director Bill Rauch] knows his business, and this smart, swift, refreshingly unpredictable Measure is one of his finest efforts yet. Not only is every detail of the transposition from Vienna circa 1600 to corporate America circa 1970 worked out with rigorous comic logic, but the cast is fabulously good." (Wall Street Journal)
