“The Robber Bridegroom” at 12 Miles West Theatre Company

“The Robber Bridegroom”
Music by Robert Waldman
Book & Lyrics by Alfred Uhry
Based on the story by Eudora Welty

A Romantic "Tall Tale" -- Musical Comedy
The Eudora Welty version takes the original folk tale and places it in the Natchez Trace, Mississippi in the late 18th century where pretty Rosamond Musgrove lives with her father Clement, a wealthy planter, and her chilly, jealous stepmother Salome. There she is loved by her father but treated badly by his wife - never able to please however little she complains. One day, she is instructed to clean the house from top to toe, to wash the floor, polish the dishes and shine the candlesticks until they gleam and glitter in the darkness. That evening, worn out and disheveled, she meets for the first time the dashing bandit, Jamie Lockhart, and from then on, her fate is sealed.
