This Tony Award winning Gershwin extravaganza is filled with song and dance, and Ken Ludwig’s book is a hilarious comedy about female empowerment in the wild west, celebrating the power of love with award winning choreography by Susan Stroman. You will sing, you will laugh, and you will come back again.

“Classic blend of music, laughter, dancing, sentiment, and showmanship."

- The New York Times

"Such infectious fun!"
