Urban Cowboy Revived

The names that stood out back in the 1980s were undoubtedly actors John Travolta and Debra Winger when the major motion picture Urban Cowboy was mentioned. The music from the movie sparks such names as Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee. Fans will be excited to know that a stage musical of the movie is in the works. The actors playing the leads are James Carpinello and Laura Lukas, and the heavyweight music names will be Clint Black and Travis Tritt. Aaron Latham, whose Esquire magazine cover feature prompted the original movie, has co-written the show that will hopefully hit Broadway this Fall.
