About this show

This Shakespeare play becomes a mirror of modern society in a dexterously crafted adaptation from director Declan Donnellan, designer Nick Ormerod, English theater company Cheek by Jowl, and the Pushkin Theatre Moscow. With a unique brew of humor and high seriousness, Measure for Measure dissects the nature of justice, mercy, and virtue — asking unsettling questions about how we are governed and the relationships between those in power and those not.

Note: This production, which includes depictions of violence and brief nudity, is recommended for ages 16 and up.
