  • Desperate Measures Original Cast Recording Digital Album Available Today From Masterworks Broadway

NEW YORK, July 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The Original Cast Recording from the hit musical comedy Desperate Measures is available digitally today from Masterworks Broadway, with the CD set for release August 10.  With music by David Friedman (Listen to My Heart) and lyrics by Peter Kellogg (Anna Karenina), the album is produced by Robert Sher with liner notes by Peter Filichia.  Described by the Huffington Post as “a good old-fashioned musical comedy… a happy surprise of a show filled with enjoyable songs,” Desperate Measures is currently running at New World Stages in New York City. 

The Original Cast Recording of Desperate Measures is available now.

Inspired by Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, the musical is a joyful, madcap comedy that also manages to ponder the nature of justice.  The hilarious new musical 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, an 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.

In its three-time extended sold out run at the York Theater, Desperate Measures has received two Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Music and Outstanding Lyrics, one Outer Critics Circle Award for Best New Off Broadway Musical and one Off Broadway Alliance Award for Best Musical.  It’s also been highly lauded in the press world, with The New York Times calling it, “Wonderful…a delight…such a hoot,” and Huffington Post suggesting, “See it before tickets become scarce!”  Peter Filichia of Broadway Select applauded, “The funniest, most-tuneful, non-stop, slam-bang BEST MUSICAL of the season!”

The album is available for digital streaming and purchase now: https://MasterworksBroadway.lnk.to/DesperateMeasures-OBCR
