Bootleg Theater and the producers of the smash hit "The 99Cent Only Calendar Competition," are proud to present Stranger, a new Spaghetti Western Musical. Written by Eva Anderson (WILDBOY '74) and Keythe Farley (BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL) with original music by Tony Bollas (8-BIT). Directed by Farley, StrangerSTRANGER is a thrilling tale of redemption and revenge set in the desert east of the Sierra Nevadas in 1847. "Spaghetti Western" is a nickname for a broad sub-genre of Western film that emerged in the mid-1960's - so named because most were produced by Italians-- Sergio Leone being the most notable. But the distinction between the Spaghetti Western and the American Western is much deeper than the nationality of the producers. The American Western usually concerns itself with a simple story of Good vs. Evil, while the Spaghetti Western deals, often, in moral ambiguity and shades of gray. The Italian films are also much grittier and far bloodier than their American counterparts.
