The Cowboy Who Fell From the Sky @ Shakespeare on the Paseo
Feb 22 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 The Cowboy Who Fell From the Sky

“The Cowboy Who Fell From The Sky” — an immersive, post-apocalyptic, pop-up folk concert — will be performed February 22nd-24th and March 1st-3rd at 8 pm at Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park on Paseo (2920 Paseo near 30th & Walker.) Additionally, Taylor Gross’s inter-dimensional graphic paintings will be housed in the lobby in a series called (((“Hard Traveling” a space romp!)))

Michael and Taylor have been friends and colleagues for 25 years. They sat next to each other in their high school’s AP Art class. Years later Taylor had an underground venue in Norman that Michael produced shows in. And now, coincidentally, they’re producing visual and performance work in the same genre: dystopian space westerns.

“Cowboy…” is the newest original show from Oklahoma-based singer/songwriter Michael Todd, hailed by BroadwayWorld as “a renaissance man for the new millennium.”

In another dimension, Oklahoma is the last remaining island on Earth, and a mysterious cowboy gathers the last remaining survivors…whose lives will be forever changed by his sudden appearance.

“In this new show, I get to send all these beautiful alien singers to another dimension to fall in love. I think it’s a most appropriate dystopian musical for Valentine’s Day.” Todd says of his new creation.

Todd’s last show “Gallow Walkers” (presented Halloween 2017) featured actor / singer / multi-instrumentalists, circus arts, silent film projections, and more. Audiences can expect all that and more, as “Cowboy…” features the same cast.

“For this show, I’m drawing inspiration from the Space Race and Spaghetti Westerns of the late 1960s. Also, our cast all play their own instruments (including banjo, dobro, cello, and harp – among others) and perform aerial acrobatics. I had the opportunity create something that would highlight the incredible talent right here in Oklahoma.”

The show stars local favorites Amanda Fortney, Mateja Govich, Ben Harrell, Chelcy Harrell, Jessica Tate, Jennifer Teel, Michael Todd, and John Rouse. The creative team includes Ronn Burton, Audrey Johnston, Tom Robenolt, and creator Michael Todd.

The Art of Taylor Gross, which features graphic paintings of aliens, robots, cowboys, and transdimensional beings, will be featured in the lobby. Prepare yourself for the strange.

Part of the proceeds for the performances benefit Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the door or at www.michaeltoddmusic.com.

Center of the Universe looking at the Tulsa Arts District


The First Friday Art Crawl was established in 2007. This year-round monthly event features all of the galleries, studios and museums as well as the part-time galleries in various shops opening their doors to show art. The Art Crawl is held on the first Friday of the month and open from 6 pm to 9 pm.

In line with its original purpose, local artists are given an opportunity to display and sell their work. This event has grown from 50–100 people visiting 4–6 venues to an event that has drawn over 3,000 people and continues to attract new people to Downtown Tulsa. Besides the art galleries being open, the established museums and galleries offer free admission and many shops stay open late. During any given Art Crawl, visitors can expect visual art, performances and maybe a few fireworks! Each venue offers something different and creative, a true hallmark of the Tulsa Arts District.

The First Friday Art Crawl can be the perfect date night when you start with a cocktail, coffee or early dinner on one of the many patios. It can also be a leisurely browse of the art and a great late dinner or nightcap at the District’s unique restaurants or clubs. Families can find many options from kid-friendly gallery shows to live music in the park. For those who like to linger even later, stay for one of the clubs, bars or coffee shops – many of which offer live entertainment.

Paseo First Friday @ Paseo Arts District
Mar 2 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
