Performance of Johnny Guitar at History Boy Theater Company
115 South Wilson Ave
Jefferson, IA 50129
Based on the 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!
