Open: 09/07/17- Close: 09/24/17 Loveless Texas
Loveless Texas tells the story of two brothers in 1930s Texas… the elder is King Navarre, responsible oil man and cattle rancher, and the younger is Berowne Navarre, playboy and rascal. With the onset of the Great Depression, King enlists Berowne and his college buddies Duke and Bubba to a contract of three years employment...with the condition of no romance, no drinking, no carousing, no gambling. When four intelligent and beautiful women arrive and demand an audience, all contracts are open for re-negotiation.

Loveless Texas is a traditional book musical, with a score in a variety of traditional Americana styles, encompassing Texas swing, bluegrass, blues, Cajun waltz and two-step, and cowboy yodels. It is a fun, joyous, affirmative celebration of the power of love.

Sheen Center : 18 Bleecker St

But they DO have two half-jews, an adopted person, a gay gentleman who's occasionally mistaken for trans, and a white dude who can grow an afro.

Special guests include comics Drew Anderson (UCB, NPR, Littlefield) and Yedoye Travis (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Coming to the Stage/Hulu).
