Summary

In 1890, in a territory out West, Johnny Blood, a hot tempered young cowboy is sentenced to hang for killing a man in a bar fight. His sister, a novice nun in a nearby mission, is persuaded to plead with a corrupt governor to spare her brother’s life. The governor promises to pardon Johnny if his sister, the Sister, will 'do his bidding' for the night. Adding to the humorous complications are a hard-bitten sheriff, a voluptuous saloon girl and a priest who reads Nietzsche. “Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall…” -William Shakespeare

The York Theatre Company, in association with Cecilia Lin and Hu Guo, opens its 2017-18 Season with Desperate Measures, the foot-stompin’, knee-slappin’ new musical with a nod to Shakespeare's Measure for Measure. It's funny, it's sexy, it's country, and it's a New York premiere with music by award-winning composer David Friedman and book and lyrics by two-time Tony nominee Peter Kellogg.
