Merrily We Roll Along

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by George Furth
Based on the original play by George s. Kaufman and Moss Hart

In Collaboration with the Department of Music

Directed by Jenny Male
Musical direction by Phillip Collister

In Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along, the story of three best friends Frank, Charlie, and Mary is told in reverse order.  The musical begins as their long friendship breaks apart in 1976, continues backwards in time as their friendship grows and frays over the years, and ends with how they first met and expressed their hopes and dreams for the future back in 1957.  This wonderful musical, which includes classics such as Not a Day Goes By, Good Thing Going, and Opening Doors, is sure to make you laugh and tap your toes as well as make you think and break your heart.
