Merrily We Roll Along begins in the present and moves backwards, tracing the lives of wealthy, jaded composer Frank Shepard and his two estranged friends, Charley and Mary. Three best friends at the start of their careers face a bright future: young, talented and enthusiastic about the worlds waiting to be conquered. This friendship will be contested during their 20 years of personal and professional milestones, ambition and fate. With a brilliant Broadway- style score and that deep insight one expects from any Sondheim endeavor, Merrily We Roll Along is a spirited and moving cautionary tale for anyone who has ever pursued a dream.

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