THE BAKER'S WIFE
BOOK BY JOSEPH STEIN
MUSIC AND LYRICS BY STEPHEN SCHWARTZ
BASED ON THE FILM "LA FEMME DE BOULANGER" BY MARCEL PAGNOL AND JEAN GIONO
DIRECTED BY RENA GAVIGAN

The bickering residents of a rural village in 1935 Provence, France, 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 (MTI International).
