From the Lantern Archives: MEASURE FOR MEASURE

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Charles McMahon

"A brilliant production." –The Philadelphia Inquirer

When the power of the State is put in the service of one man's lust, Shakespeare creates one of his greatest heroines to combat the abuse. Isabella's courage and brilliance are called upon to fight back against power, corruption, and sexual blackmail. This major play in the Bard's canon will surprise and move modern audiences with its timely insights into human motivation and resilience.

MEASURE FOR MEASURE is part of Plays from the Lantern Archives, a new program celebrating some of the finest productions from recent Lantern seasons, brought vividly back to life on screen. This performance was professionally filmed with a live theater audience in April 2019.
