WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Johnny Blood, a hotheaded young cowboy, is sentenced to hang for killing a man in a bar fight. When his sister, Susanna, a novice nun in a nearby Franciscan mission, pleads for his life, the Governor offers to pardon Johnny -- if Susanna will sleep with him. What to do? The sheriff suggests Susanna say yes and then, under cover of darkness, switch places with o­ne of the saloon girls. What happens next makes for a desperate mix of comedy, suspense and romance, in Desperate Measures -- a Western musical loosely based o­n Shakespeare's Measure for Measure. Part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival.
