From the pen of Dale Wasserman (librettist of “Man Of La Mancha”) comes a tale of con-men, bankrupts and runners-awayers – flawed men and women lured West by the promise of new beginnings.
The setting is the Colorado Territory, circa 1875. When the citizens of the town of Esperanza offer the pulpit of the proposed town church to a scheming flim-flam man, events are set in motion which will lead to the return of a recluse, the redemption of a lost soul, and the conversion of a confirmed conman.
With composers Scott DeTurk and Bill Francoeur, Wasserman has created a moving tale of redemption and romance, rich in haunting melodies, lilting waltzes, plaintive Country-Western ballads and foot-stompin' showstoppers. A rare instance of a serious musical Western, “Western Star: is also one of that vanishing breed of well-constructed character-based book shows in the tradition of Rodgers and Hammerstein.
