“Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! The Red Clay Ramblers play like angels auditioning for Gabriel...A tangy, melodious country-and-blues score. The Red Clay Ramblers are always a pleasure to hear!” –The New York Times
Lone Star Love Original Cast Recording
Nominated as "Outstanding New Musical Off-Broadway" by the Outer Critics Circle, LONE STAR LOVE is inspired by Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor, as conceived and adapted by John L. Haber, with music and lyrics by Jack Herrick, and contributions from Michael Bogdanov, Bland Simpson and Tommy Thompson. A toe-tapping, crowd-pleaser of a show, it features the beloved Red Clay Ramblers, who since 1975 have been melding bluegrass with jazz and rock, leading The New York Times to exclaim, "Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! The Red Clay Ramblers play like angels auditioning for Gabriel!"
LONE STAR LOVE transports Shakespeare's John Falstaff to post-Civil War Texas, where he wreaks havoc on the town of Windsor, and in so doing, gets his comeuppance. The off-Broadway production began a limited run at the John Houseman Theatre on November 23, 2004, and was extended by popular demand through February 6th, 2005.
This 20-track CD comes with a full-color 40-page booklet complete with lyrics and production
