The Robber Bridegroom

The Robber Bridegroom
This bluegrass fairytale is loaded with innuendo, mistaken identities and wacky hijinx.

A rousing, bawdy Southern fairytale from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Driving Miss Daisy! The score, by Robert Waldman, is meant to be played by a small band on stage - and it's one of the only genuine bluegrass scores ever heard in a Broadway musical. Since opening on Broadway in 1975, The Robber Bridegroom has gone on to become a regional favorite.

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, her pea-brained henchman and a hostile talking head-in-a-trunk, and you have a rollicking country romp.

Told in "story theatre" fashion with nine principal actors on a unit set, The Robber Bridegroom is extremely flexible in its staging and production possibilities. With its distinct sound, colorful cast, and unique form of storytelling, The Robber Bridegroom is a hidden gem!
