“Cowboy Poet: A C&W musical,” written, scored and directed by Deborah Magid, will have its world premiere 7:30 pm Friday, May 4 at the Los Alamos Little Theatre, 1670 Nectar Street, Los Alamos, NM. The play follows the efforts of Cowboy Poet Wyatt Rugosa to regain his muse, a woman he has loved from afar and whose yearly partner dance — all movement, no words — provided his inspiration. Now she’s available but his words have dried up. Complicating matters are sub-plots of jealousy and theft, all tumbling together in a raucous exploration of desire, ambition, trust and hope — set to the rhythms and rhymes of Country and Western music.
Cowboy Poet will be performed 7:30 pm May 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 and 19 with a 2 pm matinee May 13. Tickets are $12 general admission and $10 seniors and students.
