Jenn Rapp directs and choreographs the musical about the icon of the Wild West, which will run through Oct. 9 at the McGinn/Cazale Theater. Outlaws has music by King and Liu, lyrics by Liu, and book by Liu, Calarco and Alastair William King.

Boardman (Next to Normal, Altar Boyz, Academy) stars in the title role, with Murgittroyd as Pat, Isabel Santiago (In the Heights) as Celsa, Justin Gregory Lopez (The Tenth Floor) as Chavez, Travis McClung as Tom and Antonio Addeo (Academy) as Charlie.

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 serves 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).

The McGinn/Cazale Theater is located at 2162 Broadway. For further information visit NYMF.
