About this show

Wagner's Ring cycle is spun as a witty Texas fable with five actors playing more than 30 outrageous characters at breakneck speed. Songs run the gamut from Broadway and Texas swing to jazz and twangy country western. Mismatched lovers who meet on the day of their shotgun double wedding, three generations of feuding families, a magic ring of power, wild west lariat tricks, a synchronized swimming revue, a song and dance tribute to the joys of guacamole, and the sweetest two-step ever to slide across a stage add up to wild comedy. Variety wrote: "Your sides will ache by the end of the fast paced country western musical comedy," and Hollywood Reporter said: "Conjure up your basic Texas hootenanny, complete with lassos, long neck beers, fringed leather and steel guitars. Now, if you can, marry that image with Wagner's Ring Cycle, in all its operatic, melodramatic intensity. These improbable, no impossible, bedfellows come deliriously together in [this] splendidly giddy musical."
