Full Casting Announced for The Robber Bridegroom, Starring Steven Pasquale
Alex Timbers directs the 1975 musical for Roundabout Theatre Company.
Full casting has been announced for Roundabout Theatre Company's upcoming revival of the musical The Robber Bridegroom, starring Steven Pasquale (The Bridges of Madison County). Performances begin February 18 at the Laura Pels Theatre, with opening night set for March 13.
Joining Pasquale in Alex Timbers' production of the Alfred Uhry-Robert Waldman musical are Ahna O'Reilly (The Help) as Rosamund, Leslie Kritzer (Gigantic) as Salome, Greg Hildreth (Peter and the Starcatcher) as Goat, Andrew Durand (Gigantic) as Little Harp, Evan Harrington (Avenue Q) as Big Harp, Lance Roberts (Shows for Days) as Clement Musgrove, Nadia Quinn (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) as Raven/Goat's Mother, and Devere Rogers (Five Guys Named Moe) as Airie/Man.
Based on the short story by Eudora Welty, The Robber Bridegroom takes place at the Natchez Trace in Mississippi. It follows Jamie Lockhart, fair-faced gentleman by day, hardhearted bandit of the woods by night, as his world is turned upside down after he falls for the beautiful daughter of a wealthy planter.
Roundabout's staging marks the 40th anniversary of the original production, which opened on Broadway in 1975 and starred Kevin Kline and Patti LuPone. The show went on to enjoy an unprecedented hit return engagement on Broadway the following year, with Barry Bostwick winning the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical.
