Johnny Guitar Summary

Based on the 1954 film starring Joan Crawford, Johnny Guitar the musical brings a rousing original score with the sounds of 1950's lounge, western, and rock & roll music to the cult classic. Set in a small town in the New Mexico mountains circa 1865, the musical centers on Vienna, a sultry saloon keeper who built a booming business on her back. Though Vienna is the ultimate 'bad girl gone good', her nemesis, the pent-up Emma, sees things differently. A domineering cattle baroness, Emma controls the town with an iron fist but loses her grip when she falls for the dangerously hot-headed Dancin' Kid. By the time Johnny Guitar, a tall stranger with a secret past rolls into town, the stage is set for a showdown, unlike anything the Old West or Off-Broadway has ever seen.
