The Big Deal: ‘Doom McCoy And The Death Nugget’ At Ochre House Theater

by Gila Espinoza 23 Jan 2019 2:01 AM

Ochre House Theater will present the world premiere of “Doom McCoy and the Death Nugget,” a new musical written and directed by Justin Locklear. Springing from the tall tales of the American West, a new story has been discovered and brought to light. It is the story of Doom McCoy, a humble cowboy, born during a wild astrological event, who could ride his horse through time and space. Connecting myths like a constellation, he shaped the Old West in ways we are only now beginning to understand. Coming to life through puppets, live music, and multimedia, “Doom McCoy and the Death Nugget” is a spiritual and cosmic journey through the life of America’s lost legend. Enter for a chance to wrangle up one pair of tickets to the opening night performance on February 9.
