Now Playing Onstage in Baltimore - Week of 5/11/2014 THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM
SANDY SPRING FRIENDS SCHOOL
5/15-5/17/2014
A rousing, bawdy Southern fairy tale set in eighteenth century Mississippi, THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM is the story of the courting of Rosamund, the only daughter of the richest planter in the country, by Jamie Lockhart, a rascally robber of the woods. The proceedings go awry, thanks to an unconventional 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 the recipe for 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. The hysterical book by Alfred Uhry, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of DRIVING MISS DAISY, gives each actor his or her moment to shine. Composer Robert Waldman has created a score to be played by a small onstage band. It's one of the only genuine bluegrass scores ever heard in a Broadway musical, giving this unusual tale of the Natchez Trace a distinctive sound all its own.

Now Playing Onstage in Baltimore - Week of 5/11/2014 LES MISERABLES
KENSINGTON ARTS THEATRE
5/1-5/31/2014
This international smash-hit may be the most popular musical in the world. In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter. His world-view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean at last attains the peace he has sought for so long.Epic, grand and uplifting, LES MISÉRABLES packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through pop opera is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards. A spectacle on Broadway and in London, LES MISÉRABLES is equally effective with a minimal set; it is its powerful affirmation of the human spirit that has made LES MISÉRABLES a popular masterpiece.
