The Wild West meets British opera-the famous tale of Wyatt Earp and the ‘Ok Corral’ shootout is told again with a comedic spin! Hilarious physical comedy and original music with a live band onstage will be sure to inspire toe-tappin’ and knee-slappin’ fun!

The lighter side of familiar characters from Tombstone, Arizona are brought to life in “My Darling Josephine”, a romantic comedy with plenty of action to keep up with period-inspired original music sung by a live band onstage.

Sabrina Sayed, an established blues vocalist who regularly opens for major acts, will lend her formidable pipes to the production as a sexy saloon girl singer, backed by a band dressing the part of wizened Wild West musicians.

A play within a play, “My Darling Josephine” will also feature excerpts from the smash hit “The HMS Pinafore”, a popular light opera of the times by Gilbert & Sullivan, still being performed regularly today.

With music sprinkled throughout, the real life characters of Wyatt Earp, Johnny Behan, Josephine Marcus, and Mattie Blaylock are joined by a fictional British actor, Barrett Rimington, who adds another tangle to their real-life love triangles and antihero aspirations.

While gunmen are battling outside, the timeless Battles of the Sexes rages on with tongue-in-cheek comedy inside the saloon. The infamous “Ok Corral” shootout is a merely a backdrop for the real action-guys and gals scrambling for the upper hand in more weighty matters: love & money!
