MEASURE FOR MEASURE Artist Profile: Laini Devin

Have you binge-watched anything lately, and if so, what? Gilmore Girls – about ten times over.

What’s something you wish you could do on stage but have never had the chance to do? Fly.

What’s your favorite line in Measure for Measure, and why? “Our doubts are traitors and makes us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.” Most of the things Lucio says are absolutely ridiculous, but sometimes he can be very profound.

Why should people come see this show? It’s so relevant to everything that’s happening in the world right now. These characters on stage, and the events that happen to them are very relatable. Even though this story was written hundreds of years ago, these characters you see still exist in the world today, and they’re everywhere in the world and in the media. It’s crazy to think that after hundreds of years it seems people are only now starting to do something about it. This show really makes you think about all of that.
