With Steven Pasquale as “Jamie Lockhart”
Wildly inventive and deliciously entertaining, The Robber Bridegroom is a raucous, hilarious, sexy theatrical gem with an irresistibly catchy bluegrass score.
Based on the short story by beloved Southern writer Eudora Welty, The Robber Bridegroom transports the audience to the Natchez Trace in Mississippi, a dangerous and mysterious corner of the country teeming with a rogue’s gallery of the most beguiling con men, hucksters, and charlatans you’ll ever meet. Chief among them, Jamie Lockhart (Pasquale)—fair-faced gentleman by day, hard-hearted bandit of the woods by night. When he falls for the beautiful daughter of a wealthy planter, his world and code of ethics are turned upside down.
A Southern-fried celebration of American myth-making as well as the art of making theatre, The Robber Bridegroom is an irreverent, thrilling, jubilant musical comedy pulsing with life and imagination.
