Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Set in the rough-and-tumble backwoods of Oregon in the 1850s, where every man still took for himself, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a delightful story about creating civilization in the wilderness. When Milly married handsome backwoodsman, Adam, she had no idea she would be responsible for taking care of his six younger brothers as well. Milly quickly whips her rowdy brothers-in-law into shape, and show them how they can court and win beautiful mates of their own. When Adam convinces his brothers to kidnap the girls they like the way the sabine women were kidnapped, however, Milly’s plans go dreadfully awry. Bursting with boisterous energy, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers features daredevil dancing, rambunctious fun, and heartfelt romance.
With a score including the soaring “Wonderful, Wonderful Day,” the hilarious “Bless Her Beautiful Hide,” and the totally absurd “Sobbin’ Women” and more.
