With a story by Pulitzer Prize-winner Doug Wright and music co-written by Phish frontman Trey Anastasio, Hands on a Hardbody is headed to Dallas. Based on an award-winning documentary film, this gripping new musical centers on an endurance competition that challenges 10 Texans to see who can keep his or her hand on a new pickup truck the longest. The winner gets the truck -- and a piece of the American Dream. After debuting to ecstatic reviews on Broadway (and earning three Tony nods), a brand new, "fully loaded" production of Hands On A Hardbody rolls into town. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
Visit the Horton Foote Society website.
Foote was the master of the one-act, and in the ’50s and ’60s made regular contributions of Texas stories in the format which were always enthusiastically reviewed and enjoyed in New York. In 1982, he wrote The Roads to Home, which is a set of three one-acts written to be performed together in one performance, and centered on three women whose small Texas town’s values ill-equip them for the tough city lives they are now leading.
Foote’s masterful storytelling is full of unblinking honesty and laced with humor. In The Roads to Home, he reveals that the women’s small town ways, built on kindness and discretion, have no system for dealing with less well-behaved feelings like terror, anguish, and passion that loom in their big city lives.
