About this show

Who caused the famous shootout at the OK Corral? Why is Wyatt Earp buried in a Jewish cemetery? Why is an 81-year-old woman pointing a pistol at a 90-year-old woman? Answers to these and other provocative questions can be found in this new musical that tells what the women of Tombstone Arizona were doing while the bullets were flying. Based on a true story, the world premiere musical I Married Wyatt Earp follows young Josie Marcus from her pampered upper-middle-class life in San Francisco, to a touring Gilbert and Sullivan troupe, to a scandalous and tawdry romance with the Sheriff of Tombstone. All of these adventures led her to the love of her life, Wyatt Earp, and the secret she thought she would take to her grave -- until the widow of Virgil Earp showed up at her door in 1943. There is an additional preview performance on Tuesday, September 27 at 8pm.
