SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS
by BWW News Desk - Jan 1, 2001

Pull up your boots and hold onto your hats when this all-dancing, all-singing, all-new production of the rip-roarin' musical comedy classic bursts onto the Ogunquit Playhouse stage September 7 to October 1.  Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a big, brawling, rollicking show filled with rambunctious energy and set in 1850s Oregon Territory with a book by Lawrence Kasha and David Landay, lyrics by Johnny Mercer, music by Gene de Paul, and new songs by Al Kasha and Joel Hirschhorn. This beloved musical based on the glorious MGM hit film and Stephen Vincent Benet's short story 'The Sobbin' Women' tells the story of Adam Pontipee and his backwoods brothers' unusual pursuit of brides. When Adam goes to town to get a wife, he miraculously convinces the beautiful and feisty Milly to marry him that same day, and then she immediately starts reforming her six rowdy brothers-in-law. When her plan to marry off the boys backfires, this exuberant rousing musical kicks into high gear with a combination of daredevil dancing and wonderful songs like 'Goin' Courtin,' “Sobbin' Women,” and 'Wonderful, Wonderful Day.'

Almeida Theatre Announces Schedule of New Season Featuring ALMEIDA GREEKS
by BWW News Desk - Jan 1, 2001

Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold introduces Almeida Greeks: 'We are delighted to announce our Greek festival this summer at the Almeida: three major productions of Greek tragedy in our theatre from May to November. Inspired in form and spirit by the Greek Dionysia, we will also present a festival of other work in the theatre and off site, including responses, talks, readings and panels At the Almeida we strive to create theatre that asks questions of its audiences, of who they are and the world they live in, work that is alive and resonant. When we came to the writers of Ancient Greece we wanted to be true to their plays - staging them in full complexity, presenting their formal iconoclasm, their humour, musicality, politics, violence and unswerving drama. These writers took society's old myths and made them new: changed them, exploded them, set them loose as contemporary stories that spoke to their city. At the same time they posed big, provocative, uncomfortable questions; ones which two thousand years later, we still struggle to answer We want to follow their example. We are taking the Greeks out of the Attic.' (more...)
