*Blackstone Audio presents an Oregon Shakespeare Festival Audio -- Based on the 2011 stage production directed by Bill Rauch and performed by the cast of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival

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 He reactivates outdated draconian laws and aims his arrogant crosshairs at a young man whose fiancée is pregnant, sentencing him to death.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.

**Produced and directed by Ira Burton; based on the 2011 Oregon Shakespeare Festival stage production directed by Bill Rauch

About the Author:

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (1564-1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.

Review:

Praise for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's theatrical production of Measure for Measure:

''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
