This is a top-level production of a great play, but William Shakespeare’s dark, complex, late comedies always present some problems to make even their best presentations slightly unsatisfying. The role of Angelo is the main stumbling block in Measure for Measurebecause he is presented as a wholly virtuous man -- often as a tiresome prig -- who becomes tempted by the vulnerability of the beautiful Isabella, who is about to become a nun. She’s enough to make him become a viciously predatory lecher (and potential murderer). But then he must be resurrected for a happy finale.
