Merrily We Roll Along, a three-night-only concert staging of this rarely-produced Stephen Sondheim classic, is coming to the Actor’s Express October 5 -7, 2018. It features a score that many Sondheim acolytes consider his greatest.
It tells the story of the clash of personal and professional ambitions between three old friends whose lives have diverged. As it moves backward in time, we rediscover the jealousies and conflicts that separated them, and discover the origins of the deep bonds that have inextricably cemented their lives to each other.
Merrily We Roll Along features a great score, which includes such musical theatre standards as Old Friend, Good Thing Going, Our Time and Not a Day Goes By.
Jewish American Composer Stephen Sondheim is best known for writing the lyrics to West Side Story and Gypsy and for writing the music and lyrics for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Merrily We Roll Along is based on the book by George Furth, directed by Freddie Ashley and music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.
