Inspired by Shakespeare's Measure for Measure, this madcap musical that tells the tale of Johnny Blood, a handsome young man whose life is in danger over a saloon brawl. Set in the early 1890's, Johnny must put his fate into the hands of a colorful cast of characters including a wily sheriff, an eccentric priest, a authoritarian governor, a saloon girl gone good and a nun out of the habit as they all struggle to decide Johnny's fate. Laws are broken and hearts are won as they try to find justice in a world that often doesn't seem just.

With music by David Friedman, Book and Lyrics by Peter Kellogg, and direction by Bill Castellino.

Cast includes Lauren Molina, Conor Ryan, Gary Marachek, Peter Saide, Nick Wyman and Sarah Parnicky
