A rock musical based on the music of Texas trio ZZ Top is slated to open in Las Vegas next year.
Sharp Dressed Man, is described in a press release as, "an outrageous, bawdy musical romp about a Lone Star auto mechanic who becomes a modern-day Robin Hood, stealing hearts — and car parts — with the help of his merry band of beer drinkers and hell raisers." It will be, as you might expect, "a rock musical with a wicked sense of humor and a heart as big as Texas."
The show, executive produced by the band -- vocalist/guitarist Billy Gibbons, vocalist/bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard -- will feature such iconic hits as “Legs,” “La Grange,” “Gimme All Your Lovin’” and “Cheap Sunglasses." It is being co-produced by Caesars Entertainment's Michael Gruber and Jason Gastwirth, along with lead producers Carl Stubner (the band's longtime manager) and Prem Akkaraju (Tommorrowland: Ten Years of Unity, Love, Madness and Magic).
