The musical has music by David Friedman and a book and lyrics by Peter Kellogg. Producers are Pat Flicker Addiss and Mary Cosette.

The production also features scenic design by Jim Morgan, costume design by Nicole Wee, lighting design by Paul Miller, and sound design by Julian Evans. David Hancock Turner serves as musical director. Casting is by Carol Hanzel, and the production stage manager is CJ LaRoche.

In the new musical, inspired by Shakespeare's Measure for Measure and set in the early 1890s, Johnny must put his fate into the hands of a colorful cast of characters, including a wily sheriff, an eccentric priest, an authoritarian governor, a saloon girl gone good, and a nun out of the habit, as they all struggle to decide Johnny's fate.
