BWW Reviews: Stars of MSMT's SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS Reimagine Their Roles
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Jul 16, 2014

'What I love that Patti [Colombo] is doing with this show is that she is not making it a sepia-toned romance,' declares Jarid Faubel, the actor who portrays Adam Pontipee in Maine State Music Theatre's new production of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, directed and choreographed by Patti Colombo, which opens its three-week run July 17th. His co-star, Heidi Kettenring, concurs: 'Millie is one of the most challenging musical roles I have done of late.

She is feminine, but strong enough to have made that journey alone.' (more...)
