The show will be music directed by Justin Levine with choreography by Connor Gallagher and directed by Tony award nominee Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher) as part of Roundabout's 50th Anniversary season.
The Robber Bridegroom begins preview performances Off-Broadway on February 18, 2016, and opens officially on March 13, 2016 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street). This will be a limited engagement through May 29, 2016.
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.
