Starring Annie Golden, this exciting new musical is inspired by the Blaxploitation movies of the 1970’s (think Shaft), and follows 60-year-old unemployed actor Annie 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 80’s Rock ‘n’ Roll), the musical follows a woman of a certain age as she tries to find the inner-strength she needs to save theater itself and realize her true badass identity. Pure unadulterated fun!
