About this show

The Peccadillo Theater Company, producer of last season's sold-out revival of The Beauty Part, unearths another classic American play. A comedy about love, art, and commerce, Begger On Horseback is the story of Neil McRae, a struggling musician whose disdain for popular music hinders him from having a successful career. When he meets the eccentrically wealthy Cady family, Neil must choose between marrying their daughter Gladys, who could offer finacial security so he can concentrate on his serious music, or the woman he loves. Director Dan Wackerman updates this zany fantasy play using musical elements of hip-hop, rap, and funk.
