LONE STAR transforms the theater into a rowdy Texas bar in the early 70’s with many surprises. This production marks the second NYC revival since Powers Boothe originated the role of Roy on Broadway in 1979. With a new concept from past productions, LONE STAR features a performance by The Chalks inside a Texas roadhouse saloon in 1972. In the cluttered back of the bar, the play takes a turn and deals with a man who returns home after a tour of duty in Vietnam and bonds with his brother by reminiscing the past the present and the future.
Run time is 2 hours 15 minutes with one intermission.
