North Coast Repertory Theatre gallops into the New Year with a witty, wild musical comedy that takes Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure and shakes it up. Set in the Wild West, this is a rollicking romantic musical that manages to address law and order, justice and hypocrisy. Loaded with laughs and toe-tapping music, DESPERATE MEASURES inspired The New York Times to brand it “…wonderful, delightful…such a hoot!” Buy tickets now for this Grade A musical before it pulls up stakes and leaves town. Music By David Friedman and Books & Lyrics By Peter Kellogg

Orchestrations by David Hancock Turner & Vocal Arrangements by David Friedman.
