"The Baker's Wife" in Concert (The Music Theatre Company): Homebaked Goodness

"The Baker's Wife" in Concert (The Music Theatre Company):  Homebaked Goodness

The Music Theatre Company presents The Baker’s Wife (in Concert).  In 1935, in a small village in France, the baker has died.  The villagers have been deprived of their carbs for weeks.  When the new baker arrives in town, they believe their problems are solved.  Then, they get a look at his wife.  Genevieve is a beauty and quite a bit younger than Aimable.  The city folk are in awe of their odd relationship and his delicious baked goods.  The young dashing Dominique is only interested in Genevieve.  After Dominique woos Genevieve away, the baker looses his interest in baking and living.  The townsfolk concoct a plan to get the runaway spouse back so they can enjoy bread again.  The Baker’s Wife is a wholesome sandwich without a lot of meat.
