The Cast Recording of the award-winning 2016 Roundabout Theatre Company revival of The Robber Bridegroom is available now on Ghostlight Records!
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 rogueâ€™s gallery of the most beguiling con men, hucksters, and charlatans youâ€™ll ever meet. Chief among them, Jamie Lockhartâ€”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.
The cast of The Robber Bridegroom includes Andrew Durand, Evan Harrington, Greg Hildreth, Lortel winner Leslie Kritzer, Ahna Oâ€™Reilly, Lortel winner Steven Pasquale, Nadia Quinn, Lance Roberts and Devere Rogers.
Directed by Alex Timbers and choreographed by Connor Gallagher, with music direction by Justin Levine, the Off-Broadway revival of The Robber Bridegroom includes book & lyrics by Alfred Uhry, music by Robert Waldman and orchestrations by Justin Levine & Martin Lowe.
