Roadside is a melodic, rip-roaring musical based on a play by Lynn Riggs, whose Green Grow the Lilacs became Oklahoma! Roadside is a Southwestern love story of mythic proportions about two kissin', punchin', cussin', larger-than-life characters who refuse to settle down and be "house-broke" by the arrival of fences and laws. Premiered at the York in 2001. The limited engagement will play 5 performances March 30 - April 1 at York Theatre at Saint Peter's Church.
