Roundabout Theatre Company has announced that Ghostlight Records will record the cast album of The Robber Bridegroom on Wednesday, June 1. The show is currently playing a limited engagement through May 29 at the Laura Pels Theater.

Based on the short story by Eudora Welty, The Robber Bridegroom takes place in the Natchez Trace in Mississippi, a dangerous and mysterious corner of the country teeming with a rogue's gallery of beguiling con men, hucksters, and charlatans. Chief among them is Jamie Lockhart — fair-faced gentleman by day, hardhearted 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.

The cast of The Robber Bridegroom includes Andrew Durand, Evan Harrington, Greg Hildreth, Leslie Kritzer, Ahna O'Reilly, Steven Pasquale, Nadia Quinn, Lance Roberts, and Devere Rogers.

Directed by Alex Timbers and choreographed by Connor Gallagher, with music direction by Justin Levine, Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of The Robber Bridegroom features book and lyrics by Alfred Uhry, music by Robert Waldman, and orchestrations by Justin Levine and Martin Lowe.

The design team includes Donyale Werle (sets), Emily Rebholz (costumes), Jake DeGroot and Jeff Croiter (lighting), Darron L. West and Charles Coes (sound), Leah Loukas (wigs and makeup), Jacob Grigolia-Rosenbaum (fight director), and John Miller (music coordinator).

Roundabout Theatre Company's production of The Robber Bridegroom received three 2016 Lucille Lortel Awards, for Outstanding Revival, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Musical (Steven Pasquale), and Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical (Leslie Kritzer).
