Theatre: Desperate Measures
Friday, October 11, 2019
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until Sunday, October 13, 2019
This hilarious, critically-acclaimed off-broadway musical comedy is set in the 1890s and inspired by Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure. Dangerously handsome Johnny Blood 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. Will they rise up and pull of the greatest caper yet or will Johnny be left hanging? Winner of 2018 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards!
