"Desperate Measures" is a new 6-person Western musical very loosely based on Shakespeare's "Measure for Measure." In 1890, in a territory out West, Johnny Blood, a hottempered young cowboy is sentenced to hang for killing a man in a bar fight. His sister, Susanna,a novice nun comes to town to plead with a corrupt governor to spare her brother's life. The governor promises to pardon Johnny if Susanna, will "do his bidding" for the night. Susanna isreluctant to agree so the wily sheriff comes up with a plan: Susanna will agree to the governor'srequest and under cover of darkness, she will switch places with one of the saloon girls.
