According to NYMF: "A media sensation before his time, Billy the Kid was one of the Wild West’s most infamous outlaws. He, Pat Garrett and their young gang live a rebellious carefree life, but that quickly changes after Billy draws his gun. On the run, these ‘kids’ must learn to grow up…the hard way. Driven by a heart-pounding rock score, this edgy musical spins a tale of youth and friendship, fame and violence in America."
Todd Underwood will serve as associate director/choreographer, with musical director Chris Blisset. The creative team also includes David Gallo (scenic design), Sky Switser (costume design), Betsy Adams (lighting design), Jon Weston (sound design) and J. David Brimmer (fight choreographer).
