Paula’s Guest/Topic this week:
Paula’s guest today will deliver a dose of Shakespearean summer theater as they share with us the story of the Northfield Arts Guild Production of the play “Measure for Measure.” Paula is joined by guests Susan Carlson, director of the production and Joe Jorgensen, who plays the Duke Vincentio of Vienna.
Measure For Measure
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Susan Carlson
A young man commits a small indiscretion and is severely punished because of a “zero tolerance” policy. A publicly conservative politician has a tendency to behave inappropriately around attractive women. Do these scenarios sound like newspaper headlines? Nope! These events were dreamed up by William Shakespeare!
Measure for Measure is a comedy which tells the tale of the young couple Claudio and Juliet. In our tale, the love of our young couple is threatened by a strict judge named Angelo. Angelo, unfortunately, has a less than honorable love of the ladies. Angelo’s abuse of power causes his comeuppance through a series of comedic misadventures and the young couple is eventually allowed to marry and to live happily ever after.
