Item description for Measure for Measure (Arkangel Complete Shakespeare) by William Shakespeare...
Puritanical Angelo finds his values changing as his lust for the virtuous Isabella sinks him into the corruption he condemns in others. This thought-provoking black comedy is a brilliant exploration of justice and mercy.

Worth several hearings Jul 11, 2006
Though I enjoy the Gielgud/Richardson recording, this is simply a superlative recording. All three of the principles: Roger Allam, Simon Russell Beale, and Stella Gonet turn in incredible performances. This recording, compared to the forementioned Gielgud/Richardson recording, is full of vitality and energy. The clarity and accessibility to a modern audience, and the incidental music adds perfectly to the mood and theme of this play. I highly recommend this, an exemplary performance of perhaps Shakespeare's most underrated play.
