Join KERA’s Art&Seek for a rare backstage look at how a professional musical is born.
The Dallas Theater Center built Stagger Lee entirely from scratch, from the story to the set. Art&Seek has tracked the progress of the show since an early workshop in 2013. The show opens at the Wyly Theater on Jan. 30.
Meet the creators of the story and music, watch the show change, learn more about the real-life Stagger Lee, and listen to the way musicians have mythologized him for almost a century.
