Music and Lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner
Book by Rupert Holmes
In 1960s Texas, an introverted boy named Walter is left on the doorstep of his great-uncles, Hub and Garth McCann — two old eccentric curmudgeons with a mysterious past and a fortune stashed away. An unlikely family is born when the McCann brothers recount exotic tales of adventure and romance from their youth, inspiring Walter to become a man, while Walter in turn reignites their lust for life.
