Ruth Stage is back! Fresh off their critically acclaimed Off Broadway premiere productions of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the maverick theatre group returns with a captivating adaptation of the dark comedy, Lone Star, by James McLure.

Lone Star, takes place in the cluttered backyard of a small town Texas bar. Roy, a brawny macho type, is back in town, battling symptoms of PTSD after a hitch in Vietnam. Joined by his younger brother Ray, this hilarious and poignant study of a pair of Texas "good ole boys" explores the depths of brotherhood and the scars to be dealt with from battles fought at home and abroad.

Ana Isabelle, who played "Rosalia" in Steven Spielberg's Oscar nominated West Side Story, stars as 'Elizabeth.' Additionally, Lone Star will feature an original song written and performed by Ms. Isabelle.

Disney's Ryan McCartan (Wicked, Frozen, Heathers The Musical, Fox’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Liv & Maddie) will star as 'Cletis.'

Also, Matt de Rogatis, who earned critical acclaim for his performance as 'Brick' in Ruth Stage's Off Broadway premieres of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, plays the suffering Vietnam veteran, 'Roy Caulder.'

Lastly, Dan Amboyer rounds out the cast as 'Ray.' Amboyer is best known for his role on the hit TV show Younger, playing opposite Hilary Duff as well as playing opposite Neil Patrick Harris in the Showtime hit series, Uncoupled.

The production is directed by Joe Rosario. For all the latest news, please visit
