The Gunfighter Meets his Match

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Abby Payne; Choreography by Glitter Kitty Productions

All's fair in the Wild West...

The Gunfighter Meets His Match is a Wild West musical conceived and written by Brooklyn based singer-songwriter Abby Payne. The universal love story, inspired by the New York City music scene and the short stories of Louis L'Amour, is one of love, loss, and hope as a rugged gunfighter faces his ultimate high stakes battle for his truest love. With the creative direction and highly entertaining choreography of Glitter Kitty Productions, the Gunfighter will transport you to another world with a few familiar echoes of our own.

Running Time: 90 minutes

The Acorn Theatre @ Theatre Row
