Don’t miss this rip roaring hit!
"Billy the Kid takes no prisoners… It spins out the saga of William Bonney from cradle to grave with song, dance and references that careen from commedia and circuses to "Deadwood" and the Three Stooges. Beneath the sleight-of-hand and slapstick, "Billy" has a subtle topical pulse amid the mania, shot through with rambunctious invention from its redoubtable troupe in multiple roles...the unpredictable, delightful verve makes Billy the Kid the kind of ribald frolic that theater exists for..."
- Los Angeles Times
"A rootin’, tootin’, American West is the fictional context for a thoroughly mythologised account of the rise and fall of one of the Wild West’s more colourful figures, as this New Mexico-based company combines narrative, music, commedia-style farce, acrobatics, circus clowning and even Brechtian alienation in 75 minutes of high-energy performance”
