An "unsung" musical hero

"The Robber Bridegroom is one of a group of little known but wonderfully performable musicals. This recording, which features Barry Bostwick as the romantic hero of this bluegrass fantasy, gives you a little of the freewheeling flavor of the show. Written by the team that went on to give us Driving Miss Daisy, the story is based on a novella by Southern writer Eudora Welty. The bluegrass score is the foundation for this strange, funny, romantic love story, and the characters include a gentleman-by-day bandit-by-night hero, a wicked stepmother right out of a fairy tale, and a pair of bumbling villians, one of whom is a talking severed head! The songs are singable- listen to the lullaby Sleepy Man or the haunting Deeper in the Woods- the plot, hilarious. If you're a music theatre person, give this a try."
The Robber Bride Groom - Soundtrack Review -

"The Robber Bride Groom is a wonderful production that has been one of the best kept secrets of Broadway. It's music is so lively and "foot stompin'" on CD that it makes you want to get up and square dance when you listen to it. Certainly you do not have to love country music to love these extraordinary musical pieces. "There's Nothin' Up", "Rosamund's Dream", and "Deeper In The Woods" are some of the most beautiful songs that you will ever hear. And "The Prickle Pear Bloom", "Two Heads", "Love Stolen", and "Goodbye Salome" are hilariously funny and entertaining. I would highly recommend this soundtrack to anyone!"
