Stephen Sondheim’s remarkable Broadway fable of friendship and the high price of success opens in the present and moves backward in time. The triumphs and failures of a jaded composer and his two closest friends are traced from their estranged ending to their idealistic beginning. Directed by John Doyle, who led our Tony Award-winning production of Company, the performers in this highly anticipated revival will play all of the instruments as they act and sing in one of Sondheim’s most melodic scores.

MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG is suitable for adults and children age 13 and older. It contains adult language and mature themes.

Directed & choreographed by John Doyle
