Description

Exploring the corrupting nature of power, "Measure for Measure" is one of Shakespeare's darker comedies, posing controversial ideas that proved far ahead of their time. In this gritty staging from London's Cheek by Jowl and Moscow's Pushkin Theatre, the Bard's timely tale of sex, piety and politics are further examined through the lens of contemporary Russian society. A delectable mix of comedy and tragedy, "Measure for Measure" tackles important questions about authority and agency over one's body (both political and personal). See this original and thrilling production when it makes a stop at Boston's Emerson Cutler Majestic Theatre during its first-ever U.S. tour.
