A hilarious adaptation of the Bard’s Measure for Measure, Desperate Measures Musical is premium Off-Broadway entertainment in every sense of the word. This laugh out loud comedy premiered at New World Stages - Stage Four on June 13th and has been getting rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. The show is based in the American Wild West and masterfully adapts Shakespeare's original characters and setting for the stage. If you’re in New York City, looking to be entertained for a good two hours, Desperate Measures Musical is the show for you.

With music by David Friedman and a book by Peter Kellogg, The Desperate Measures Musical returns to the Off-Broadway stage with director Bill Castellino taking the reigns behind the stage. The show was previously performed at the York Theatre Company in the last quarter of 2017 where it has a mega successful run. The Desperate Measures Musical was brought back in less than six months after the previous production ended, seeing the demand from audiences. Returning from the York Theatre production are Gary Marachek (Eleanor) as Father Morse, Nick Wyman (Les Misérables) as Governor, Lauren Molina (Rock of Ages) as Bella Rose, Peter Saide (Skin Tight) as Sheriff Green, and Conor Ryan (Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert) as Johnny Blood. Also joining the company is Sarah Parnicky as Susanna/Sister Mary Jo. With stellar music, a madcap story and a game cast, The Desperate Measures Musical is one of those effortlessly brilliant productions that just cannot be missed.
