Join in on the hootin' and hollerin' when Goodspeed Musicals presents Seven Brides for Seven Brothers as the opening production of its 2005 season. Go courtin' in 1850s Oregon territory with this high-spirited musical comedy. When eldest brother Adam gets himself a bride, his backwoods brothers set out to capture their own. It takes a long, hard winter for these rough and rowdy boys to win over their brides with flowers and romance. Based on the MGM film and The Sobbin' Women by Stephen Vincent Benet, the musical appeared on Broadway in 1982 at the Alvin Theatre. With a book by Lawrence Kasha and David S. Landay, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers also has music by Gene de Paul and lyrics by Johnny Mercer. New songs by Al Kasha and Joel Hirschhorn. Goodspeed's production is directed by Greg Ganakas, with choreography by Patti Colombo. Additional Thursday matinees at 2pm: May 19, June 2, 16, and 23.
