LOVELESS TEXAS

Music and Lyrics by Henry Aronson
Libretto by Cailin Heffernan

Direction by Cailin Heffernan+

A new American country musical inspired by Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost

 

Loveless Texas tells the story of two brothers in 1920 Texas...the elder is King Navarre, responsible oil man and cattle rancher, and the younger is Berowne Navarre, playboy and rascal. With the onset of the Great Depression, King enlists Berowne and his college buddies Duke and Bubba to a contract of three years employment...with the condition of no romance, no drinking, no carousing, no gambling. When four intelligent and beautiful women arrive and demand an audience, all contracts are open for re-negotiation.

Loveless Texas is a traditional book musical, with a country score in a variety of traditional Americana styles, encompassing Texas swing, bluegrass, blues, Cajun waltz and two-step, and cowboy yodels. It is a fun, joyous, affirmative celebration of the power of love!
