Merrily We Roll Along

The traditional showbiz musical is turned on its head in Merrily We Roll Along, a thrilling and compelling Broadway fable about friendship, compromise and the high price of success.

Merrily We Roll Along begins in the present and moves backwards in time, tracing the lives of wealthy, jaded composer Franklin Shepard and his two friends through each milestone (good and bad) of their personal and professional lives.

With a brilliant Broadway-style score and the crackling wit, humour and deep insight expected from a Stephen Sondheim endeavour, Merrily We Roll Along, written by George Furth, is a spirited and moving cautionary tale for anyone who’s ever pursued a dream.

Directed by Christopher D. King, Merrily We Roll Along stars Caroline Buckingham, Caitlin Clugston, Ian Crowe, Amy Gartner, Rana Laviolette, Olivia Leon, Julian Lokash, Ryan Nunez, Ashlyn O’Shea, Geneva Perkins, Alexandra Nicole Quispe, Matthew Ramer, Sari Rosofsky and Scott Walters.
