“There is so much to love in this production. Cara Ricketts is an incandescent Isabella. She delivers a mesmerizing performance. Jonathan Cake is a charismatic Duke. And Thomas Jay Ryan brings depth and nuance to the role of Angelo. Simon Godwin directs a stellar cast in an electrifying, high-energy staging.” – Lore Croghan, Brooklyn Daily Eagle

MEASURE FOR MEASURE is “a taut and illuminating production…Jonathan Cake glides through his role as the Duke with giddy charm while Thomas Jay Ryan’s Angelo smoothly shifts from rigid zealot to man smitten with Isabella…Cara Ricketts’ virtuous Isabella never breaks. It’s a poised and formidable performance.” – Nicole Serratore, The Stage
