PP:  What do you think audiences will enjoy about the musical?

Luke:  For starters the music, costume design and sets are a ton of fun, but at the root of the story, the show has an incredible amount of heart in it. It showcases more than just two outlaws who robbed from banks. It focuses on family and compassion for those who have struggled during the 1930s depression era.

PP:  What is your favorite rehearsal moment?

Luke:  My favorite rehearsal moment has to be the first time myself (Buck) and Briar (Clyde) performed this lift in our first scene together. It was unscripted, and kind of strange, but it works for the both of us and really represents the kind of bond that we have. It reminds me of the bond I have with my own brothers.

PP:  Why pick this show to be the first time you’re on stage here?

The creative team for this show is the reason. With Dwight, Sarah, and Jessica at the helm, I knew that I would have a fun and fulfilling experience.
