Loosely Based on a Prolific Texas Bank Robber, Peggy Jo

You wouldn’t look twice at Peggy Jo. She's a good daughter, always tips, plays by the rules - but when she dons a fake beard, sunglasses, and ten-gallon hat, she becomes “Cowboy Bob”- the slickest bank robber Texas has ever known. And she may just be the life-affirming inspiration one waitress in a Dallas Chili’s badly needs to buck routine and take control of her own life. Equal parts Riot Grrrl rage and Texas twang, this world premiere musical loosely based on actual events - and co-authored by Galveston’s own Molly Beach Murphy - invites audiences to join the heist, take life by the reins, and let it ride.


This edgy and adult new musical contains Language, Violence, gunshots, death, and grief as it tells the tale of an unusual outlaw. To learn more about the content of this show, please click here for our content advisory page.
