I Do! I Do!

I Do! I Do! is a musical with a book and lyrics by Tom Jones and music by Harvey Schmidt. Based on the Jan de Hartog play The Fourposter, the two-character story spans fifty years, from 1895 to 1945, as it focuses on the trials and tribulations, laughters and sorrows, and hopes and disappointments experienced by Agnes and Michael Snow throughout their marriage. The set consists solely of their bedroom, dominated by the large fourposter bed in the center of the room. After four previews, the Broadway production, directed and choreographed by Gower Champion, opened on December 5, 1966 at the 46th Street Theatre, where it ran for 560 performances. Mary Martin and Robert Preston comprised the original cast; Carol Burnett and Rock Hudson starred in a national tour. This performance ran in Dodge City from April 20 – May 6, 2007.
