Synopsis & Cast
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 will be directed by Charles McMahon and features a cast of Lantern veterans: Chris Anthony as Claudio/Ensemble, Kirk Wendell Brown as Escalus/Ensemble, Ben Dibble as Angelo/Ensemble, Adam Hammet as Pompey/Ensemble, Claire Inie-Richards as Isabella/Ensemble, Anthony Lawton as The Duke/Ensemble, Jered McLenigan as Lucio/Ensemble, and Charlotte Northeast as Mistress Overdone/Mariana/Ensemble.  more info
