The Baker's Wife

Information

Show Credits: Book by Joseph Stein
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Description:
Old world charm permeates every moment of The Baker's Wife, a true gem of a musical by legendary authors Joseph Stein (Fiddler On The Roof) and Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked, Pippin). This romantic musical has developed a loyal following for its lush score featuring the song "Meadowlark."


The bickering residents of a rural village in Provence, France in 1935 have been without a baker for seven weeks. They finally find peace and contentment in the new baker, Aimable, and his attractive young wife, Genevieve. However, when Genevieve is lured away by a handsome young gigolo, the middle-aged baker loses all zest for life and baking. When he refuses to bake, the villagers must work as a team to bring Aimable and Genevieve back together.

This delightful musical showcases a strong ensemble of featured roles and the opportunity for a female star. A lesser-known title, with a tuneful score and witty book, The Baker's Wife should turn out to be the "hidden gem" in your season of shows.
