"Four Chords and a Gun" -- A New Play Regarding The Ramones

Feb 21, 2018

On this edition of ST, we learn about "Four Chords and a Gun," a newly created non-musical play that looks at the iconic punk band known as The Ramones -- and in particular, at their efforts to record an album with the eccentric yet legendary music producer, Phil Spector. The play was written by John Ross Bowie, an actor best known for his roles on TV's "Speechless" and "The Big Bang Theory." As we learn on today's show, "Four Chords and a Gun" focuses on the years 1979 and 1980, when The Ramones stood on the very edge of breaking into stardom. The play is being presented by Tulsa Project Theatre, and two performers from that company are our guests. The play will run at the Tulsa PAC's Norman Theatre through the 25th; more info (including ticket details) is posted here.
