“… Get ready to be entertained!” – Pioneer Press.
COWGIRLS is a joyous musical comedy that focuses on a trio of classically trained female musicians that is mistakenly booked to play Hiram Hall, a country western concert bar in Kansas. The owner of the club, Jo Carlson, must raise enough money during the weekend to pay off debtors or the hall will be closed. Though mostly unfamiliar with country music, the trio convinces Jo and her employees, Mickey and Mo, to allow them the chance to transform themselves into legitimate cowgirl performers in time for the first performance.
“ A joyous slapstick hoe-down! COWGIRLS wrings every drop of moonshine humor from its crossbreeding of classical and country.” – The New York Times
“ An unplugged gem of a musical, COWGIRLS is a fun, honky-tonk romp.” –New York Newsday
