You may know Beaches best as a classic big-screen tear-jerker, or you may know it as the bestselling novel upon which the movie was based. Either way, there's exciting news about this tale of two extraordinary women and their long friendship: It's now a live musical co-written by the novel's author, Iris Rainer Dart. Catch the world premiere at Signature Theatre and relive the laughter, adventure and sorrow of outlandish Cee Cee and beautiful, privileged Bertie. Despite their differences, they become childhood friends, and embark on a tumultuous 30-year journey in which they go from pen-pals to roommates to romantic rivals to emotional supporters during life's most meaningful moments.

Sarah Rule plays are always interesting. This one with a woman who gravitates to a lesbian cowboy who sang throughout rather than the childhood boyfriend whom she marries is an earlier one.
It was a challenge to understand what the cowboy was singing.
Still, the play is so much fun. I especially enjoyed the husband's tale as a museum guard of a Rothko painting on loan.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Here as ever, Ruhl has a finger to her chin in poetic meditation, with the added attraction of a youthful yodel in her heart." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/theater-review-late-a-cowboy-song-staged-with-bluesy-whimsy/2014/01/07/29ee4520-77b7-11e3-a647-a19deaf575b3_story.html"><em>Washington Post</em></a>
- "Daugherty, proving he's a master at balancing quirk and well-intentioned story-telling, is able to show the dance that Mary is dancing - both literally and figuratively - in her relationships and in her own mind in a consistently interesting way. Overall, this artistic vision serves the piece well." --<em><a target="_blank" href="http://www.broadwayworld.com/washington-dc/article/BWW-Reviews-No-Rules-Theatre-Co-Starts-Season-Strong-with-Quirky-LATE-A-COWBOY-SONG-20140106">Broadway World</a></em>
- "[Daugherty] seems to have found the exact mix of comedy and tragedy that best enhances the play’s effect ... With this work, Alyssa Wilmoth establishes herself as a major Washington actor – the kind of performer whose appearance in a cast can serve as a stand-alone justification to see a play ... Thomas and Dinolfo also acquit themselves well in difficult roles." --<a target="_blank" href="http://dctheatrescene.com/2014/01/06/late-cowboy-song/"><em>DC Theatre Scene</em></a>
