About this show

The 1980 hit movie starring John Travolta and Debra Winger, made a household name of Gilley's, a sprawling dance bar in Houston, TX and its signature mechanical bull; now Urban Cowboy comes to the road as a Broadway musical. Featuring world famous songs such as "Could I Have This Dance for the Rest of My Life," "Lookin' for Love In All The Wrong Places" and "The Devil Went Down to Georgia", the musical tells the story of Bud, a new breed of cowboy who's turning heads and looking for love in the biggest honky-tonk in the world. His whirlwind romance and marriage to Sissy and the subsequent troubles these young newlyweds encounter are played out against a gritty landscape of oil fields, trailer parks and a sawdust covered dance floor where nights come alive in a sea of booze, brawls, babes and a foot stomping band. Originally appearing at the Broadhurst Theatre on Broadway in 2003 this revised version includes hit songs from Clint Black, Travis Tritt, Brooks and Dunn, Toby Keith, Shania Twain, The Dixie Chicks, Willie Nelson, Johnny Paycheck, Lee Ann Womack, Anne Murray, Mickey Gilley, Garth Brooks, Francine Reed, Johnny Lee, Charlie Daniels and Waylon Jennings.
