Genre: Musical
Book and Lyrics by Tom Jones Music by Harvey Schmidt Directed by David Glenn Armstrong

Roadside is a melodic, rip-roaring musical based on a play by Lynn Riggs, whose Green Grow the Lilacs became Oklahoma!

Roadside is a Southwestern love story of mythic proportions about two kissin’, punchin’, cussin’, larger-than-life characters who refuse to settle down and be “house-broke” by the arrival of fences and laws. Premiered at the York in 2001.
