Photo Flash: First Look at The Acting Company's MEASURE FOR MEASURE
The Acting Company presents Measure for Measure, playing through August 24, 2019 at the Duke on 42nd Street (229 W. 42nd Street), with opening night for both plays set for Sunday, July 28, 2019.

Shakespeare's strikingly current play Measure for Measure, directed by Janet Zarish, speaks powerfully about impossible moral choices in the story of the devout novice Isabella, whose faith is tested when her brother is sentenced to death for impregnating Juliet out of wedlock. When the outwardly virtuous leader Angelo propositions Isabella in exchange for his release, she must consider whether upholding her holy vows is worth her innocent brother's life.
