Johnny Guitar

Johnny Guitar

Book by Nicholas van Hoogstraten
Music by Martin Silvestri
Lyrics and Music by Joel Higgins

Directed by Karla Kash

Based on the Republic motion picture Johnny Guitar. This laugh-filled musical based on the legendary Joan Crawford cult western embraces and sends up fifties-style movie acting, melodramatic romance and rough-and-tumble cowboy action. Featuring a sensational score with echoes of doo-wop and steamy southwestern ballads, Johnny Guitar tells the story of a sultry saloon keeper and her jealous nemesis, the town’s tycoon. When a handsome stranger with a secret past rides into town, the stage is set for a hilarious showdown unike anything the Old West -or the theatre- has ever seen!
