Newly released production shots offer a first look at the Off-Broadway world premiere of Dead Outlaw, a new musical from David Yazbek, Erik Della Penna, and Itamar Moses. Audible Theater is producing the new work at the Minetta Lane Theatre, where the run is set to continue through April 7.

The work is a reunion for several of the creators of Best Musical Tony winner The Band's Visit, including Yazbeck (who penned the music and lyrics for Dead Outlaw with Penna), Moses, and director David Cromer.

The new musical follows Elmer McCurdy—an ambitious, turn-of-the-20th-century outlaw whose death ended a life of failed crime and alcoholism and began a brilliant career as a mummified side-show attraction that traveled the USA for decades. Yazbek and Penna have collaborated on 14 news songs, with Moses providing the book. The project is the brainchild of Yazbek, who reportedly has been fascinated with the story for three decades.
