William Shakespeare’s 'Measure for Measure'
Performing Arts | Film
Date: August 17, 2014

Location: Show map
Booth Playhouse
130 N. Tryon Street
Charlotte, NC

Step aside, Shaft. Get down, Foxy Brown. Here comes Isabella, and she's fighting for justice. 

When the young Isabella learns that Angelo, the acting mayor of Vienna, has condemned her brother to death, she pleads for his life only to be on the receiving end of an indecent proposal from the pious Angelo! What happens next brings Isabella into the bizarre and seedy underbelly of Vienna. 

Inspired by the exploitation films of the 1970s, Los Angeles-based director Tiger Reel brings a fun and funky vibe to this, one of the Bard's darkest – and most modern – comedies.

Measure for Measure is appropriate for ages 13 and up.
