'Desperate Measures' at Manoa Valley Theatre

March 19-April 5, 2020



Desperate Measures by David Friedman and Peter Kellogg is set in the early 1890s, where a dangerously handsome Johnny Blood puts his fate into the hands of a colorful cast of Old West characters when he faces danger following a saloon brawl. Laws are broken and hearts are won as these denizens try to find justice in a world that often doesn’t seem just, in this witty and wild musical comedy shake-up of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure. The play was the winner of the 2018 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best New Off-Broadway Musical and the Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best Musical.
