About This Show

Once regarded as the greatest of U.S. Deputy Marshals, many scholars believe that Bass Reeve's life served as inspiration for the character of the Lone Ranger. Set in 1888 Oklahoma Indian territory, Cowboy follows Bass Reeves and his Native American companion as they seek out two criminals fleeing to the Mexican border, one of whom Reeves has a death warrant for. But soon, they find themselves stuck in an old saloon as a deadly tornado slowly approaches. From the author of Black Angels Over Tuskegee, Layon Gray, Cowboy is the first full-on Western to hit a Broadway or off-Broadway stage in over 80 years
