It’s time to set the record straight. Young Josie Marcus is nothing like the girls back home. Passionate and fearless, she leaves behind her upper-class Jewish family for the adventure of Tombstone, Arizona—home of legendary lawman Wyatt Earp, and site of the infamous Shootout at the O.K. Corral. Decades later, Josie must finally come to terms with the 30-second gunfight that led her to a lifetime of regret. Weaving together 1944 Hollywood and the mythic Wild West, I Married Wyatt Earp sheds new light on one of history’s most fictionalized moments. Eleven gutsy women give voice to the untold story of the American frontier in this compelling new musical.
