Measure for Measure

Measure For Measure is a dark comedy of lust, intrigue and justice set in sixteenth century Vienna. The story involves, among others, a young man sentenced to death for fornication, his sister, a novice in a nunnery, a self-righteous judge, and the Duke of Vienna who goes about disguised as a monk. The young man's sister pleads for the life of her brother, only to be told by the hypocritical judge that if she will yield her virginity to him, he will spare her brother. The plot really thickens when the meddling, disguised Duke decides he will set things right through a series of bizarre manipulations. Ray Jenness directs the fine cast which includes Steve Aiello, Christina Applegate, Beth Bevins, Kelsey Bevins, Sherri Gray, Gregg McLaughlin, Beebe Nelson, Nick Neyeloff, Nathaniel Punches, Jim Robinson, Matt Schwabauer, Michael Siering, Elinor Teele, Michael Wescott and Jennifer Wilson. The stage manager is David Perrigo; costumes by Susan Frey. Produced by Joseph Stiliano.
