Desperate Measures is playing The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter’s. The musical features music by Friedman and book and lyrics by two-time Tony nominee Kellogg.

In Desperate Measures (a nod to Shakespeare's Measure for Measure), a fiery young cowboy awaits the death sentence in 1890. Will his sister, a novice nun on a nearby mission, be able to convince the corrupt governor to spare her brother? “Adding to the humorous complications are a hard-bitten sheriff, a voluptuous saloon girl and a priest who reads Nietzsche,“ read production notes from the York.

The production is presented in association with Pat Flicker Addiss. For tickets and more information visit Yorktheatre.org.
