Fresh on the heels of a sold-out, critically acclaimed run at Barrington Stage Company, Broadway Bounty Hunter makes its boisterous Big Apple Debut in concert at Joe's Pub. Inspired by the exploitation movies of the 1970s (think Shaft or Enter the Dragon), this rafter-shaking new musical follows down-on-her-luck actor Annie (played by Annie Golden) as she’s asked to become a bounty hunter and capture a South American drug lord. With an instant-classic R&B/Funk score, the musical follows a woman of a certain age as she tries to find the inner strength she needs to save theatre and realize her true badass identity. Starring a electric and diverse cast led by Alan H. Green, Scott Watanabe, and Jeff McCarthy, be among the first to catch a glimpse of the show that everyone is talking about. Ready or not, here comes Annie Golden: Bounty Hunter!

"Powered by a silky retro-R&B Score, the musical delights... Ms. Golden sings the songs--kills them, even--with the full-throttle soulfullness they cry out for, her still-agile voice riding easily atop the suave melodies. [Her] winning performance tugs us into her character's bruised heart and battling spirit." - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
"A wild ride! A rollicking musical mash-up. The rowdy, funny, cheerfully cockeyed show marries elements from 1970s movies...with a twisted tale of showbiz ruthlessness." - Don Aucoin, The Boston Globe
