This perennial favorite is based on the haunting folk ballad of "Barbara Allen." Set in the Smoky Mountains, it recounts the story of John, a strange "witch boy" who upon first beholding the beautiful Barbara Allen
immediately falls in love. He is given human form to woo and marry her on the condition that she remain true to him. The marriage is consummated and Barbara gives birth to a witch child whom the townspeople destroy in a superstitious frenzy. During a religious revival Barbara is led to betray John thus breaking their spell of love. As she dies, he returns forever to the world of the mountain witches.

"Gusto, vitality, humor, and a natural and easygoing way of introducing folk songs that add up to an engaging evening on Broadway." — NY Post
