Here's how I Married Wyatt Earp is billed: "Young Josie Marcus is nothing like the girls back home. Passionate and fearless, she leaves behind her upper class Jewish family for the adventure of Tombstone, Arizona—home of legendary lawman Wyatt Earp. Eleven gutsy women give voice to the untold story of the American frontier in this compelling new musical." Designing Wyatt Earp are Ann Bartek (scenic design), Ryan J. Moller (costume design), Jorge Arroyo (lighting design) and Andy Leviss (sound design). The music director is Remy Kurs.
