Measure for Measure
This gloomy Shakespeare comedy features an outwardly pious, crafty regent who imposes a death sentence for fornication, then privately proposes a clemency-for-sex death to the convict’s sister. Whores, dandies and deceit dominate this slick, professional production. Tu-Su 7:30pm (alternates with Much Ado About Nothing). Through 8/23. $14-$77.
