Doc Holliday and the Angel of Mercy, a one man play written by Vaughn Marlowe and
Frank Tabbita, enjoys its NW premier at the Leopold Hotel’s Crystal Ballroom with
scheduled for April 30, May 1st, May 7th and May 8th. Curtain rises at 7:30pm.
Frank Tabbita, last seen as inventor Nikola Tesla in the celebrated play, Tesla!
returns to the
stage as the legendary gunfighter—Doc Holliday.
John Henry ‘Doc’ Holliday, was an American dentist, vagabond, gambler, and fearless
who sided with his friends, most notably Wyatt Earp and the Earp brothers. The year
is 1881 and
Doc is making preparations in his Tombstone Hotel room for what will go down in legend
“Gunfight at the OK Coral.”
Using whiskey and Laudanum to deaden the pain of his burning tubercular lungs,
Doc takes us
on a journey of the Old West, de-mystifying his legend as fearless and cold blooded
the way. What really drove Doc to dare the fates to do him in? Doc Holliday and
the Angel of
Mercy explores the man behind the legend—and the woman behind the man.
