About the show:
This thrilling musical tells the inspiring story of the rise and fall of a remote mining town during the height of the California Gold Rush. Journey with intrepid men and women from around the world as they take an incredible leap of faith and cross continents and oceans in search of the American Dream—only to find themselves swept up in a clash of cultures, passion, greed and romance. The 5th is famous for inventing new musicals—this time we are reinventing a classic.

A sweeping saga of the mythic West and the pursuit of the American Dream, Lerner and Loewe’s Paint Your Wagon is filled with some of the greatest songs ever written for the musical stage—“They Call the Wind Maria,” “I’m On My Way,” “I Talk to the Trees” and “I Was Born Under a Wand’rin' Star.” The 5th Avenue Theatre commissioned celebrated writer Jon Marans to create a new book for the show, and Seattle audiences will be the first in the world to see this new incarnation of a classic musical adventure under the direction of 5th Avenue Theatre Executive Producer and Artistic Director David Armstrong.
