Photo Flash: Lone Star Love!

The new Broadway-bound musical comedy Lone Star Love, starring Academy-Award nominee Randy Quaid in his Broadway debut as Colonel John Falstaff, has its official Seattle opening Wednesday, September 19 at The 5th Avenue Theatre. The show continues its run in Seattle through September 30, and will open for previews at New York's Belasco Theatre (111 West 44th St) on November 1; opening night on Broadway is December 3.

"Love Star Love is inspired by Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor transplanted to the Wild West shortly after the Civil War. Confederate Colonel John Falstaff works his charms on the wives of two wealthy cattle ranchers, with an eye on their husbands' land and money. Featured on stage are members of The Red Clay Ramblers – who won a special 1999 Tony Award for Fool Moon."

Tickets to Lone Star Love range in price from $20 - $77. Tickets are available over the phone by calling 206-625-1900 (toll free 888-5TH-4TIX), online at www.5thavenue.org or in person at the box office in downtown Seattle. There is no service charge when purchasing tickets in person at The 5th Avenue Theatre Box Office.
