Loveless Texas

BOOMERANG THEATRE COMPANY is pleased to present LOVELESS TEXAS, a new musical set during the Great Depression, inspired by Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, with book and direction by Cailin Heffernan, and music & lyrics by Henry Aronson.

Loveless Texas tells the story of two brothers in 1930s Texas… the elder is King Navarre, responsible oil man and cattle rancher, and the younger is Berowne Navarre, playboy and rascal. With the onset of the Great Depression, King enlists Berowne and his college buddies Duke and Bubba to a contract of three years employment...with the condition of no romance, no drinking, no carousing, no gambling. When four intelligent and beautiful women arrive and demand an audience, all contracts are open for re-negotiation.

Loveless Texas is a traditional book musical, with a score in a variety of traditional Americana styles, encompassing Texas swing, bluegrass, blues, Cajun waltz and two-step, and cowboy yodels. It is a fun, joyous, affirmative celebration of the power of love.
