When summer arrives it will be time again for London theatre audiences to head to the Open Air Theatre in Regent’s Park for another season of stand-out shows. Amongst many high quality productions will be a new staging of the well known musical Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, which appears at the seasonal venue from July to August under the direction of Rachel Kavanaugh.
It will be a chance for audiences to revisit a classic story that started life as a 1954 film and was first seen on a stage in the early 1980s in the United States. It’s also likely to be the most talked-about show of the whole season.
On top of that it is also a chance for audiences to go back to the 1850s as we are introduced to the characters of Adam and his new wife Millie. But this relationship does not just end with companionship between the two – Adam also needs Millie to help him care for his six brothers and she soon realises that the best way of doing this is by marrying them off. But when they fall for a group of women it does not go according to plan as they are already taken, leading them to take it in their own hands to ensure they find the women of their dreams.
The musical has appeared in many occasions over the years, starting with the US version in the early 1980s and leading to the more recent UK touring version at venues across the country. The book is by Lawrence Kasha and David S Landay, with music and lyrics from Gene De Paul and Johnny Mercer. Extra songs were penned for the stage version by Al Kasha and Joel Hirschhorn.
And on this occasion it will be the direction of Rachel Kavanaugh that brings it all to life.
An experienced practitioner, Kavanaugh has worked for companies like the Birmingham Repertory Theatre and directed London productions such as The Sound Of Music for the Open Air Theatre, Love Story at the Duchess Theatre, The Merry Wives Of Windsor for the Royal Shakespeare Company and Dracula on a UK tour, among others.
Joining shows like The Lord Of The Flies and Peter Pan, which also appear this season, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers is at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre from Friday 23rd July 2015 (previews from Friday 16th July 2015) to Saturday 29th August 2015.
