Constellation’s ‘Desperate Measures’ a Rip-Roaring Delight

Constellation Theatre’s latest rowdy comedy, Desperate Measures, is a rip-roaring delight and a must-experience night of theatrics. 

From a gun-toting nun (perfectly performed by Julia Link at the media performance) to a Nietzsche-loving eccentric clergyman (Joshua Simon) to a vain politician, this Wild West setup shakes up Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, on which it is inspired, and adds in plenty of the bawdy bits and riotous hijinks that Constellation’s audiences love to laugh over.
