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!
It’s 2008 in small town USA, and there is nothing Norman Rockwell about it. Lisa and Simon used to be soldiers, but they're trying to put all that behind them. Except Simon's mother just committed suicide, Lisa's marriage is falling apart, the local meth dealer won't leave them alone and the only calm person in town is Simon's odd brother Terry, who spends all his time playing video games. Wrestling with the aftermath of death, and realization that no one knows what comes next, these four Americans grasp toward adulthood in a place they dream of leaving.
