Set in the Old West with an unforgettable, soulful score, this world-premiere musical comedy written by Kirsten Childs tells the tale of Isabella “Bella” Patterson, a young black woman in late 19th Century America. When Bella boards a train west to reunite with her Buffalo soldier sweetheart, she encounters the most colorful and lively characters ever to roam the Western plains. Bullets and fists will fly, heads and hearts will break, but - blessed with a big heart, and a voluptuous figure - Bella will breeze on through it all.

The world premiere of Bella: An American Tall Tale is produced in association with Playwrights Horizons, New York.
