Time Out says

Director Henry Godinez’s production of this Shakespeare “problem play” at Chicago Shakespeare Theater shifts the show’s setting to 1950s Cuba on the brink of Fidel Castro's rise to power, reimagining the story—in which the puritanical judge Angelo, once appointed as head of the city, hypocritically abuses his power behind the scenes—among the sensual environs of Havana. Get to the theater early to hear live mambo, bolero and Afro-Cuban jazz performances meant to mimic the sultry feel of Havana nightclubs.
