A rousing, bawdy Southern fairy tale set in eighteenth century Mississippi, The Robber Bridegroom has one of the only genuine bluegrass scores ever heard in a Broadway musical. It is the story of Jamie Lockhart, a rascally robber of the woods, who attempts to steal the affections of the lovely Rosamund, the daughter of the richest planter in the county. The proceedings go awry, thanks to an unconventional case of double-mistaken identity. Throw in an evil stepmother, her pea-brained henchman and a hostile talking head-in-a-trunk, and you have the recipe for a rollicking country romp. Join us for this sweet love story in the American folk tale tradition.
Based on the novella by Eudora Welty.
Book and Lyrics by Alfred Uhry, Music by Robert Waldman.
