A western drama about the life of the man who inspired The Lone Ranger. Cowboy is the first full on western to come to a New York stage in nearly 80 years.
Once regarded as the greatest of U.S. Deputy Marshals, many scholars believe that Bass Reeve's life served as inspiration for the character of the Lone Ranger.
Set in 1888 Oklahoma Indian territory, this show follows Bass Reeves and his Native American companion as they seek out two criminals fleeing to the Mexican border, one of whom Reeves has a death warrant for. But soon, they find themselves stuck in an old saloon as a deadly tornado slowly approaches.
"After experiencing Cowboy, you may never hear the word the same way again." – Miami Herald
"Cowboy is a theatrical wonder! Gives reason to go back to theatre.”- Miami Artzine
