A highlight of Dallas Theater Center's 2014-2015 season is the world premiere of Stagger Lee, a musical that takes its title from the century-old folk song that became a No. 1 R&B hit for Lloyd Price in 1959.
The story spans the 20th Century, tracing mythical characters in their quest to achieve the American Dream. The deep-seated themes of racism and the raw power of human will are sure to give you chills. And the music - from Joplin-inspired tunes to R&B and hip-hop - will definitely get your feet moving.
