Description

It's 1890 in a lawless territory out west -- and Johnny Blood, a hot-tempered young cowboy, finds himself sentenced to hang for killing a man in a bar fight. Johnny's sister, a novice nun in a nearby mission, is persuaded to plead with a corrupt governor to spare her brother's life, and the governor promises to pardon Johnny if she'll "do his bidding" for the night. Adding to the hilarious complications are a hard-bitten sheriff, a voluptuous saloon girl and a priest who reads Nietzsche. Be there when The York Theatre Company, in association with Cecilia Lin and Hu Guo, opens its 2017-18 Season with this knee-slappin' new musical loosely based on Shakespeare's "Measure for Measure". It's naughty, it's country and it's a New York premiere. Yee-haw, verily!
