Roundabout to Revive Musical ‘The Robber Bridegroom’ with Steven Pasquale

Steven Pasquale will star in an Off Broadway revival of the 1975 musical “The Robber Bridegroom,” set to be directed by Alex Timbers (“Peter and the Starcatcher,” “Here Lies Love,” the upcoming stage version of “Frozen”) in the spring.

The Roundabout Theater Company, in association with commercial producer Daryl Roth (“It Shoulda Been You”), will produce the 1970s musical, which bowed on Broadway in 1975. Alfred Uhry (“Driving Miss Daisy”) wrote the book and lyrics for the bluegrass-infused music by Robert Waldman.

Based on the 1942 novella by Eudora Welty, “Robber Bridegroom” centers on a Robin Hood-like bandit (Pasquale) who falls for the daughter of a rich plantation owner. The original Broadway production starred Kevin Kline and Patti LuPone in the lead roles.

Connor Gallagher choreographs the Roundabout production, which is set to play Off Broadway’s Pels Theater in a run that begins previews Feb. 18 and opens March 13. The current occupant of the Pels, Stephen Karam’s “The Humans,” recently scored rave reviews and is tipped for a Broadway transfer.

“Robber Bridegroom” joins a 50th anniversary season at the Roundabout that includes Broadway stagings of Harold Pinter’s “Old Times,” starring Clive Owen, and a new stage adaptation of “Therese Raquin,” which opens tonight with Keira Knightley in the title role.
