The stakes are high and the performances are mesmerizing.
Experience Shakespeare’s tale in a ripped-from-the-headlines
context that is as shocking as it is revelatory. Measure for Measure
asks vital and unsettling questions about how we are governed
and, in the process, unmasks the true nature of authority, love
and justice. Presented on tour in the US for the first time,
this production of Shakespeare’s infamously complex play
from London’s Cheek by Jowl and Moscow’s Pushkin Theatre
has been hailed as ‘a real thriller, piercing the heart of the entire audience’
(Mir24) and ‘a shattering portrait of contemporary Russia’ (Novaya Gazeta).
