Old Globe Announces Cast of Robin and the 7 Hoods

Robin and the 7 Hoods

Casting has been announced for the Old Globe's world premiere musical Robin and the 7 Hoods – A New Musical featuring a book by Tony Award winner Rupert Holmes and songs by four-time Academy Award winners Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen. Directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw, with musical supervision and vocal and incidental arrangements by John McDaniel, the Broadway-bound musical comedy will run in the Old Globe Theatre July 14 - August 22.

Based on the classic Rat Pack film, Robin and the 7 Hoods takes the Robin Hood legend and gives it an early-sixties spin. Set in Chicago, when “Mad Men” reigned supreme and martinis flowed freely, the musical features such classic Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen tunes as “My Kind of Town (Chicago Is),” “Call Me Irresponsible” and “All the Way.” When Robbo, a suave, fast-rising entrepreneur in Chicago's sophisticated nightclub scene, tries to re-organize organized crime, he finds himself wanted by both sides of the law. He and his merry band quickly learn that a few wrongs – and a few songs – could make things right.
