Renowned producer Hal Wilner, composer Bill Frisell, legendary artist Ralph Steadman and director Chloe Webb bring Hunter S. Thompson's first gonzo journalism piece (and Steadman's horse sketches) to hallucinatory life. The Kentucky Derby marked the beginning of Thompson and Steadman's epic partnership, realized in this stage adaptation with an all-star cast and a band performing guitar great Bill Frisell's original score. This raucous performance makes its New York City debut, on the eve of the Kentucky Derby.
