Phoenix actor, Raymond King Shurtz, performs his solo musical piece, BOHEMIAN COWBOY for three performances only continuing The Rep's Cabaret Series. The story begins in 2005 when Shurtz's father drove his truck six miles into the Nevada desert near the Valley of Death and vanished. No information, nor his body or his final wishes were ever discovered. BOHEMIAN COWBOY is the search for him in the theatrical realm.

With the help of Hamlet, Hamlet's Father, Christ, Clyde King and an array of characters, Shurtz's search for his father---who was a cowboy, carpenter, honky-tonk singer, bohemian and disappearing specialist—is a fascinating and entertaining evening of theatre.
