I enjoyed this one man show more than I thought I would. He was very intense and passionate. He kept my full attention 99% of the time. I really appreciated his delivery and how he looked into the audience to connect with us. The story was sad and meaningful with a touch of humor and grace. Kudos to the playwright/actor.

Theatre 4S NYC, the Jean And Ken Campbell Foundation, and the Boulder Heritage Foundation, are proud to present the San Francisco Premiere of Bohemian Cowboy, written and performed by award-winning playwright and actor Raymond King Shurtz.
In November of 2005, Raymond Dean Shurtz walked into the desert in Clark County, Nevada, The Valley of Fire, and simply disappeared.
For two years, Nevada detectives, Nevada Search and Rescue, psychics, private detectives, and family and friends, searched for his body. Mr. Shurtz has never been found.
A honky-tonk singer, a cowboy, a carpenter, and a traveler of mythic proportions, the senior Mr. Shurtz left an array of mysteries as a “disappearing specialist”.
In an attempt to unravel these mysteries, his son writes and performs the legacy his father left him, using the same characteristics as his father, the original “disappearing specialist” and “bohemian cowboy”.
Raymond King Shurtz was the 2003 recipient of The Arizona Commission on the Arts Playwriting Fellowship, for Blue Baby, A Memoir, and is the author of 31 plays, published by Samuel French and Anchorage Press. His plays have been produced worldwide, several in NYC by the renowned underground theatre, Theatre 4S NYC.
