The York Theatre Company has once again extended the currently running new musical Desperate Measures, with book and lyrics by Peter Kellogg and music by David Friedman. Tickets are now on sale through December 31.

Directed and choreographed by Bill Castellino and with music direction by David Hancock Turner, the musical is described as follows: "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."

The six-member cast features Emma Degerstedt, Gary Marachek, Lauren Molina, Conor Ryan, Peter Saide, and Nick Wyman.

Performances began at the York Theatre Company at Saint Peter's on September 19 in advance of an October 1 opening.
