Why See Desperate Measures?

MusicalsOff Broadway Shows

Saddle up & see!

Giddy up and head on down to the New World Stages for this hilarious new romp that transplants Shakespeare's moral comedy from ancient Vienna to the Old West. With book and lyrics by Peter Kellogg and music from David Friedman, enjoy a toe-tapping, rootin' tooting score as the fate of our handsome hero, Johnny Blood, hangs in the balance.

Alongside Johnny, a cast of zany characters join Johnny's cause including his pious sister, a corrupt Governor, a strange sheriff, an ex-Showgirl and an eccentric priest, leading to a classic Shakespearean comedy of confusion, silliness and of course - good old fashioned romance!
