Photo Flash: First Look at Porters of Hellsgate's MEASURE FOR MEASURE

Capping off their highly successful 2012 Season, The Porters of Hellsgate presents Shakespeare's dark comedy, Measure for Measure-the Bard's deft exploration of the arrogance of power. Setting the production in 1890's Vienna, The Porters intend to take a hard look at the way we often confuse lust with love, goodness with self-righteousness, and power with purpose.  BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.

In a play whose characters include dukes and murderers, politicians and pimps, nuns and whores, spotting the worst sinner may be more difficult than it seems. Duke Vincentio transfers power of Vienna to his deputy Angelo, whom he charges to implement a strict moral code in his absence (purporting to leave on business). The Duke, however, disguises himself as a friar to see how Angelo fares in his new seat of power (and fare well, he does not). When the Duke overhears that Angelo has insisted that a young nun give him her virginity in exchange for her brother's life, he must reclaim his seat and set things right.

The show stars: Thomas Bigley, Jennifer Bronstein, Matt Calloway, Dana DeRuyck, Sean Faye, Jacques Freydont, Sterling Hall, Jamey Hecht, Michael Hoag, Gus Krieger, Lauren Lograsso, Nick Neidorf, Tim Portnoy, Kate O'Toole and Justin Michael Terry .

Measure for Measure is running Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm, with Sunday matinees at 2pm, through Sunday, October 28th, 2012, closing the six-week run. The show plays The Whitmore Theatre, 11006 Magnolia Blvd North Hollywood, Calif.
