About this show

A rebel hero to some, a notorious outlaw to the rest, a family man, and a devout Baptist, Jesse James was always more than met the eye. Missouri Legend follows him in his final days - settling down with his family, cleaning off his reputation, and pulling a heist or two to keep his bride in style. This comic and breezy play shows the James gang as a former day's Sopranos. But when James saves a penniless widow from eviction, teaches a bullying bank manager to keep his word, and then joins the posse to track himself down, it is also a timely barb for the hypocrisy of our own corporate era.
