Synopsis

We knew him as Red Rock Brody, the ultimate TV Cowboy Hero. He rode out of the Old West and into your living room in 1951, and for thirteen years, youngsters in America spent every Saturday morning with him. Flash forward thirty years to join the now aging actor who originated the role of the Cowboy Hero, and a lawyer in mid-life, who grew up watching him on TV.

Development History

This show received a three-week workshop production at The Landers Theatre in Springfield, Missouri last fall.

Festival Successes

Full production at Goodspeed Musicals (CT) in 2002.
