BWW Review: Good Theater Season Frolics To a Close with DESPERATE MEASURES Photo BWW Review: Good Theater Season Frolics To a Close with DESPERATE MEASURES
by Carla Maria Verdino-S√ľllwold - Apr 7, 2022

Portland’s Good Theater’s final offering of its nineteenth season is a deliciously zany and stylish production of Peter Kellogg and David Friedman’s 2017 musical comedy, DESPERATE MEASURES, a witty, saucy sendup of Shakespeare’s MEASURE FOR MEASURE set in the Wild West. Directed by Brian P. Allen and Cary Libkin with musical staging by Raymond Marc Dumont, the comedy written in rhyming verse is a rollicking, madcap adventure from start to finish.
