Blackstone Audio is proud to present the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s production of Measure for Measure, Shakespeare’s compelling tragicomedy that explores restraint—and lack thereof.

Who legislates morality?

The duke’s authoritarian deputy, Angelo, is hell-bent on stamping out moral decay. He reactivates outdated draconian laws and aims his arrogant crosshairs at a young man whose fiancée is pregnant, sentencing him to death. Angelo is sternly incorruptible—until he meets Isabela, a beautiful religious novice whose desirability arouses him. Flavored with live music by the mariachi band Las Colibri, this vigorous, modern production of Shakespeare’s tragicomedy reveals what can happen when sex, religion, and politics collide.

Quotes & Awards

  • “I do not know any other eminent work of Western literature that is nearly as nihilistic as Measure for Measure, a comedy that destroys comedy.”

    Harold Bloom

  • “Mr. Rauch knows his business, and this smart, swift, refreshingly unpredictable Measure is one of his finest efforts yet. Not only is every detail of the transposition from Vienna circa 1600 to corporate America circa 1970 worked out with rigorous comic logic, but the cast is fabulously good.”

    Wall Street Journal on the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s theatrical production of Measure for Measure

  • “It brings before us a group of persons, attractive, full of desire…Behind this group of people, behind their various action, Shakespeare inspires in us the sense of a strong tyranny of nature and circumstance.”

    Walter Pater, essayist, art critic, and fiction writer

  • “Four stars...this deeply illuminating production should satisfy.”

    Sacramento Bee
