February 28-March 16, 2014| The New Victory Theater, New York, NY
“A most charming new production…that’s right, I said charming.”
Ben Brantley, New York Times
New York’s Fiasco Theater sheds new light on one of Shakespeare’s darkest comedies with live music and moxie. When the Duke of Vienna disguises himself as a friar among his people, he finds the city unraveling in an ethical free fall. Before he reclaims his dukedom, can he help the chaste Isabella save her brother from the condemnation of the villain Angelo? Last seen on the New Vic stage with their acclaimed production of Cymbeline, Fiasco’s creative and collaborative ensemble will once again color complex characters and illuminate perplexing plots to tell this singular tale of morality and manipulation in MEASURE FOR MEASURE.
