Photo Preview: Paper Mill's 'The Baker's Wife'

Paper Mill Playhouse is currently presenting the musical The Baker's Wife with Book by Joseph Stein and Music & Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell) based on the film "La Femme du Boulanger." Directed by Gordon Greenberg and Choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, The Baker's Wife stars Alice Ripley as Genevieve the baker's wife, Max von Essen as Dominic and Lenny Wolpe as Amiable the baker with Gay Marshall as Denise and Richard Pruitt as Claude.

The Baker's Wife is a wry musical comedy about jealousy, lust, revenge and forgiveness. A new baker arrives in a rural French village just in time to ease the pains of the contentious villagers, who have been without bread for weeks. All is well and everyone's spirits are rising until the baker is driven to distraction and the villagers suffer the fate of breadlessness once again. To avoid yet more chaos, the villagers quickly join forces in order to bring harmony to their quaint town.

The Baker's Wife began performances on Wednesday, April 13 and runs through Sunday, May 15, 2005. Tickets $31 - $68 are on sale now. Student rush tickets are $16 and available day of performance with current ID. For tickets call 973-376-4343 or buy online at www.papermill.org.
