Best Bets | Kentucky Shakespeare’s ‘Measure for Measure’

July 26, 2012

By Elizabeth Kramer, The Courier-Journal, Published July 26, 2012

One could call it Shakespeare’s “Sex and the City.” “Measure for Measure” poses a tangled plot (this is the Bard) with Claudio and Juliet having consummated their marriage too soon in the eyes of the judge governing the city in the absence of the ruling duke.

The judge’s decision to execute Claudio sets off a string of efforts by his sister and novice nun, Isabella, visiting the judge to plead for her brother only to face his sexual advances. What is a nun to do with this moral conundrum?

The answers will unfold next week when Kentucky Shakespeare presents the play performed by The Players, a company of high school students who’ve undergone a seven-week training conservatory.

Performances start at 8:30 p.m. Aug. 2-5 in Old Louisville’s Central Park. A full-service bar and VIP seating will be available.
