In California in May 1853, Ben Rumson strikes gold and establishes a community in his own name. The show follows the progress of the town as hundreds of men come to dig for gold. But there’s a problem, the town has no women! That is soon remedied and the town competes for the affections of too few women. Filled with gorgeous standards such as “They Call the Wind Maria,” “I Talk to the Trees,” and “Wand’rin’ Star,” Paint Your Wagon is Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s sweepingly ambitious and surprisingly realistic take on freedom and family, in the Gold Rush-happy America of 1853.
