What is big and sparkly, has a Drag Queen, a cut out poster of Willie Nelson, a hot hunk of a cowboy singing the blues, 4 Elvis’ and some tap-dancing Indian Braves? That would be the new production of Lucky Guy that opens tonight at the Little Shubert.

This lighthearted musical has some major talent performing on the stage. The songs are fun, the dancers are great, and the jokes kept the audience rolling in the aisles.

The show is set in Nashville in the late 60’s but the design take is a little liberal with the period. The sets, designed by Rob Bissinger, shift easily to allows for several different spaces from the Recording Studio to Ms. Jeannine’s 28 room trailer house.

The costumes by Mr. William Ivey Long are almost as much fun as the light-hearted banter that takes place onstage. Ms. Varla Jean Merman’s who plays the role of Country Music Star Jeannie Jeannine, is bedecked and bedazzled in fabulous country star dresses, while the men rock boots that would be the envy of any NYC hipster. And the wigs…oh the wigs…
