Playwrights Horizons presents the New York Premiere of Floyd and Clea Under the Western Sky, a new musical with book and lyrics by two-time Obie Award winner David Cale and music by acclaimed jazz guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg and Mr. Cale. Lortel Award winner Joe Calarco directs.
It's a freewheeling musical journey from Montana to Austin (with a side trip to Hollywood) when a burnt out former Country & Western star (Cale) joins forces with a 20 year-old free spirit with an electrifying voice (Faber). Their meeting and unlikely friendship, and the musical partnership that arises from it, form a tale of sweet heartbreak - a parable about finding the strength, against all odds, to keep on keepin' on.
