A rousing, bawdy Southern fairytale from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Driving Miss Daisy, with one of the only genuine bluegrass scores ever heard in a Broadway musical. Set in eighteenth century Mississippi, the show follows Jamie Lockhart, a rascally robber of the woods, as he courts Rosamund, the only daughter of the richest planter in the country. The proceedings go awry, however, thanks to a case of double-mistaken identity. Throw in an evil stepmother, intent on Rosamund’s demise, and her pea-brained henchman, and you have a rollicking country romp. With its distinct sound, colorful cast and unique form of storytelling, The Robber Bridegroom is a hidden gem! Rated PG-13.
“Uhry’s script accents the humor, and Waldman’s music flies with catchy, southern and country-tinged tunes … infectious.” – Talkin’ Broadway
