below is a list of Dan Cushman's plays - click on a Play Title for more information
Whoop Up is a musical about Glenda, a tough talking woman who runs a saloon half-on, half-off a Montana Indian reservation. There is only one man who ever got the better of her, and when he shows up again a whole heap of trouble is stirred up not only for her but for the whole town. While it's a 'golden age' musical comedy, Whoop Up was one of the first musicals to incorporate the 'rock 'n' roll' sound into its catchy score
