News   PHOTO CALL: The Mufti Baker's Wife
The York Theatre will present The Baker's Wife Oct. 26-28 semi-staged concert production, part of the company's Musicals in Mufti series.

The Baker's Wife — with a score by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Joseph Stein — is based on the Marcel Pagnol-Jean Giono film "La Femme du Boulanger." The musical, according to production notes, "is a wry musical comedy about jealousy, lust, revenge and forgiveness. A new baker arrives in a rural French village just in time to ease the pains of the contentious villagers, who have been without bread for weeks. All is well and everyone's spirits are rising until the baker is driven to distraction and the villagers suffer the fate of breadlessness once again. To avoid yet more chaos, the villagers quickly join forces in order to bring harmony to their quaint town." Here's a look at The Baker's Wife in rehearsal.
