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.
See it if You know someone in the cast or want to hear great musicians do a mix of good and so-so songs. Entertaining moments
Don't see it if The story lulls heavily at times and the voices don't always rise above the instruments. Awkward staging. Not bad by any means but not great
See it if You like seeing works in development. The music was entertaining and good performances
Don't see it if You need a fully developed musical. This still feels like a work in progress that needs to be worked out.
See it if you enjoy Elizabeth Davis, bluegrass score; expressive music fills gaps in writing and acting
Don't see it if you expect a fully staged narrative musical; it's a concert w uncertainly acted scenes; tonally uneven ode to an unlikely friendship
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.
