THE OUTLAW, LAWMAN & GHOST MAGIC SHOW
Written and Performed by Blake Starr
Saturday, April 18th, 7:30 pm
The Cell Theatre, 700 1st St. NW, Downtown Albuquerque
Milton Yarberry takes the stage with an hilarious personality that captures the imagination of each audience member, taking them back to a time where characters of the Wild West ruled the land. Based on the life of an actual historical figure, the performance is a "living history" lesson sure to delight any audience. Born in 1849 in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas, Yarberry lived a colorful life and ended up being Albuquerque's first elected Sheriff. Convicted of murder, he was sentenced to death. He met his fate at the end of a rope on February 9, 1883.
The effects chosen are similar to what would have been performed by a vaudeville or medicine show performer of the time. The magic is incorporated into a story, allowing people to become a part of the action. It is filled with audience participation, in a non confrontational fun atmosphere. The show is "PG" rated for strong language, typical of the time and place.
