Goodman Theatre Artist Encounters bring together audiences and the artists who create the work on our stages in an intimate environment, for a behind-the-scenes look at the plays and the playmaking process. Join us for an in-depth conversation with Measure for Measure Director Robert Falls  before a 7:30pm performance.

Robert Falls’ daring new production of Measure for Measure takes us into the heart of Shakespeare’s dark comedy, in which virtue and vice collide—and lust and the law are inextricably entwined.

His city caught in a moral free-fall, the Duke of Vienna hands over power to Lord Angelo, who enforces long-dormant codes of chastity with zealous fervor.  When a pious young nun pleads for the life of her condemned brother, Angelo’s response is surprisingly sensual—revealing a web of desire, deception and hypocrisy that infects every corner of society. (Intended for mature audiences.)

$5 general public; FREE for Subscribers, Donors and students with ID; call the Goodman Box Office at 312.443.3800 to reserve tickets.
