What You'll Get


Desperate Measures

What do you get when you cross a mysterious sheriff, an eccentric priest, a sleazy governor, a reformed saloon girl, and a nun? If the handsome and suave Johnny Blood is lucky, he’ll get his life back. After a saloon brawl gone bad, Johnny’s been sentenced to hang, unless his band of unlikely heroes can—quite literally—save his neck.

Inspired by Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, Desperate Measures sets the Bard’s comedic premise in the Wild, Wild West and adds in a few toe-tapping tunes to boot. Since debuting in 2017, the wacky musical has racked up both praise and awards buzz, with 15 Nominations including Best New Musical from the Drama Desk Awards, Off-Broadway Alliance Awards, Lucille Lortel Awards, and the Outer Critic’s Circle.

“A delight… such a hoot! Wonderful!”—The New York Times

“A good old-fashioned musical comedy. Desperate Measures is a happy surprise of a show filled with enjoyable songs, a talented cast. A solid example of musical comedies that once reigned supreme.”—The Huffington Post

“A production of infinite jest and most excellent fancy, delicious buffoonery with infectious glee.”—Theatermania
