About the show

In this new musical, a young Texas woman and a homeless Native American man strike up an unexpected friendship. Directed by Emmy Award winner Don Scardino and starring Tony nominee Elizabeth A. Davis.


The progressive folk sound of the production weaves together acoustic instrumentation with strains of industrial pop. In this deeply fraught moment in our country, the show seeks to remind us proximity is power on the dirt road to healing. Based on a true story.

Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent

See it if you want to see a show in progress with some decent bluegrass music

Don't see it if you want a finished product with a good story. It's more about the author/songwriter/performer than about Indian Joe.
