Paint Your Wagon

Before My Fair Lady and Camelot, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe wrote Paint Your Wagon, a rousing 1951 musical about a grizzled gold prospector (Tony Award nominee Keith Carradine) whose daughter (Alexandra Socha) finds gold—and love—changing their lives forever. Filled with gorgeous standards such as "They Call the Wind Maria," "I Talk to the Trees," and "Wand'rin' Star," Paint Your Wagon is Lerner and Loewe's sweepingly ambitious (and surprisingly realistic) take on freedom, family, and racism in the Gold Rush-happy America of 1853.
