Desperate Measures played its final performance at
New World Stages on Sunday, October 28, 2018.
BOOK AND LYRICS BY PETER KELLOGG
MUSIC BY DAVID FRIEDMAN
DIRECTED AND CHOREOGRAPHED BY BILL CASTELLINO

When the dangerously handsome Johnny Blood’s life is on the line, he must put his fate into the hands of a colorful cast of characters including a mysterious sheriff, an eccentric priest, an authoritarian governor, a saloon girl gone good, and a nun out of the habit. Before the sun sets, will they rise up and pull off the greatest caper yet, or will Johnny be left hanging?

This witty and wild new musical comedy takes the Bard’s Measure for Measure and shakes things up.
