Desperate Measures Review

Witty, dramatic and intriguing, with incredible talent!

Desperate Measures is a musical comedy at the New World Stages.

Here is our review in a playful poem and rhyme:

Desperate Measures was adapted from Shakespeare

This much so, I know is clear 

It came from a play called Measure for Measure  

This, you can say, what a very great treasure.

It tells of a tale of Johnny Blood,

Who’s actions got him stuck in the mud. 

He killed a bloke, over a gal 

And now he resides behind bars, with a pal. 

A drunk priest and a caring sheriff, 

Along with his sister and a not so nice mister, 

Go back and forth in a game of trickery,

Don’t blink – it gets very slippery! 

Witty, dramatic and intriguing, with incredible talent – go see Desperate Measures to find out Johnny’s fate!
