Robin Hood is a musical in progress. Although the show will have much action and some comedy, the central goal in writing this show is to explore the characters and the motivations for their actions, especially those of Robin, Marian, and the Sheriff of Nottingham. The musical also will pay tribute to the pageants and other (oral) traditions through which the legends of the English outlaw and archer have been told throughout the centuries.

Musically, the score will be a mixture of popera and Old English folk idioms, with some traditional Broadway and operetta sounds thrown in for good measure. There will be spoken dialogue, but the ratio of sung material over dialogue will be about 3-1.

Robin Hood will be a full-length musical in two acts. Songs include Before Too Long, Outlaws, and The Greenwood Oath.
