About this show

Theater Under the Stars mounts its newly reworked production of Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, based on The Sobbin' Women by Stephen Vincent Benet and the 1954 film directed by Stephen Donen. Set in 1850s Oregon territory, the musical tells the story of Adam and his brothers' pursuit for brides. Adam, the eldest of seven brothers, goes to town to get a wife and convinces a young woman named Milly to marry him that same day. They return to his backwoods home, only for Milly to discover that all six of Adam's brothers also live in the log cabin. She sets out to reform the uncouth siblings, who are anxious to get wives of their own. Then, Adam develops an inspired solution to his brothers' loneliness... kidnap the women they want!
