A New Musical
Book by James Presson, Music and Lyrics by Alexander Sage Oyen
Frustrated with Washington and hard-up for cash, Jesse James and his brother Frank take matters into their own hands robbing banks, courting the press, and killing anyone who gets in their way. Featuring a robust bluegrass score, Outlaws is the story of a bitterly divided America and the demagogues who try to save it.
