The List **** - 2000: A Millennium Measure of Measure for Measure

Date Published: 15 August 2000

Bringing a whole new meaning to the term ‘office poitics’, Shakespeare’s dark comedy is transported to the modern business world in this super-click adaptation. Much more than a simple re-telling of the story, this is a multimedia experience, complete with an ultra-cool contemporary soundtrack, stylish images and video projection.

The story concerns Isabella, who must sleep with a judge in order to save her brother from execution. Various machinations follow which ensure she excapes her predicament and her brother is saved from the hangman. The whole production simply oozes sex and sophistication, and is a highly successful millennium make-over.
