"Oh, what a heart so true.
What a cowboy wouldn't do.
I know that I’ve got to make her mine."
A new American musical en route to Broadway sets
Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor in post-Civil
War Texas. Confederate "Colonel" John Falstaff slathers his
charms on the wives of two wealthy cattle ranchers, with an eye
on their husbands' land and money. But who’s fooling whom? The
acclaimed Red Clay Ramblers (the jazz-rock-blues string band
behind Fool Moon) — onstage as Falstaff's sidekicks —
provide a stampede of foot-stompin' tunes to dirt-kickin'
dances. Lone Star Love packs Texas-size laughs, wily
women, family feuds, country ballads and a yodeling cowboy into
a fun-loving night of musical merriment.
