Johnny Guitar, the Musical is based on the 1954 Republic motion picture Johnny Guitar. This laugh-filled musical based on the legendary Joan Crawford cult western embraces and sends up fifties-style movie acting, melodramatic romance and rough-and-tumble cowboy action. Featuring a sensational score with echoes of doo-wop and steamy southwestern ballads, Johnny Guitar tells the story of a sultry saloon keeper and her jealous nemesis, the town's tycoon. When a handsome stranger with a secret past rides into town, the stage is set for a hilarious showdown unike anything the Old West -or the theatre- has ever seen!

Bravo! Johnny Guitar works, joyously! - The New York Post

Screwy fun! A rip-snorting, bang 'em up, rootin', tootin' good time! - WOR Radio

Staged with the agreeable goofiness of a Mel Brooks spoof. - Newsday
