Savage is a dramatic musical inspired by the true story of 1920s Chickasaw Native American sharpshooter and silent film actress, Wanda Savage, as told through jazz and blues-influenced pop music. This story is as relevant today as it was 100 years ago – the story of a divorced single mother who fought racism, sexism and abuse to make a name for herself. Wanda was a renegade performer who shot her way through circuses, Vaudeville, and Hollywood before landing in a Wyoming brothel. Her thirst for fame came at a heavy price: losing the one she loved most. Savage holds up a mirror to our society to see our far we have come... or not.

Savage is based on creator Nicolette Blount's Great Grandmother, Mattie Hardwick - AKA Wanda Savage. This rebel heart fulfilled her dreams in a time when women were just starting to have a voice. In the end, she found what she really wanted was what she had all along.
