For almost thirty years, I have been working on a musical about Quanah Parker, the last Comanche chief.

"As a kid in west Texas, I had a vivid imagination and I loved to make up stories with which to entertain my family and friends. For the last 30 years, as I have grown into a crusty old coot, I have allowed my already vivid imagination to run wild - much like Quanah Parker, the last Comanche chief. We are going to perform
