Broadway Bounty Hunter

WORLD PREMIERE

Music and Lyrics by JOE ICONIS
Book by JOE ICONIS, LANCE RUBIN
and JASON SweetTooth WILLIAMS
Musical Direction by JOEL WAGGONER
Choreographed by JEFFREY PAGE
Directed by JULIANNE BOYD

Inspired by the exploitation movies of the 1970s (think Shaft  or Enter the Dragon), this exciting new musical follows a 60-ish-year-old, down-on-her-luck actor Annie (starring Annie Golden) as she’s asked to become a bounty hunter and capture a South American drug lord. With a score rich with R&B and Funk (and a splash of ‘80s Rock ‘n’ Roll), the musical follows a woman of a certain age as she tries to find the inner strength she needs to save theatre and realize her true badass identity. Pure, unadulterated fun.

Starring Annie Golden
Featuring Alan H. Green and Jeff McCarthy

Sponsored in part by
Drs. Judith and Martin Bloomfield
Contains strong language.
