Book, Music, and Lyrics by Thomas Mizer and Curtis Moore
The Legend of Stagecoach Mary, a new musical, is an irreverent yet emotional tall tale about the power of diversity, the strength of love and the kick of saloon whiskey, combining roof-raising dances, an onstage bluegrass band, sweet melodies and slapstick comedy. Did we mention it's based on a too-good-to-be-fiction story?
When ex-slave Mary Fields heads to 1880s Montana to find freedom, adventure and her long-lost best friend, she discovers a gaggle of square-dancing nuns and a town full of cowboys in need of a little lesson in the American Dream. The Legend of Stagecoach Mary was presented as part of the National Alliance for Musical Theatre's Festival of New Musicals on October 20th and 21st of 2008.
