Shakespeare on the Beach – Measure for Measure
Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare
Some rise by sin and some by virtue fall
Vienna is rife with brothels, loose morality and ludicrous characters. The weak Duke goes undercover, leaving his strict deputy Angelo in charge to clean the city up. But when Angelo sentences young Claudio to death for sleeping with his wife to be, Claudio’s sister Isobel, a nun, pleads for his life. Angelo agrees to spare him, but the stakes are high. Isobel faces an impossible choice…
Changeling’s Measure for Measure is inspired by the Moulin Rouge with more than a hint of the Burlesque. This bawdy and witty Shakespeare comedy has a storyline full of twists and turns as sin meets virtue and good battles against evil.
