First Look At 'Franklin Shepard, Inc.' From New MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG FilmUnique and sophisticated showbiz musical MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth barrels into movie theaters nationwide next Wednesday, and, before then, a preview of the spectacular performances in the riveting filmed production is now available to view, including an extended look at the show-stopping "Franklin Shepard, Inc." as played by West End Charley, Damien Humbley.

"How do we work together?" Charley provocatively poses back to the smug interviewer herself in this colorful mid-'70s-set scene from the show occurring at a TV studio with a live interview meant to enamor the songwriters to the audience instead erupting into Charley's vivid on-air breakdown of fury, wit and rage as only Sondheim could have penned it.

"Franklin Shepard, Inc." is one of a dozen momentous musical moments in the superb Maria Friedman-directed production, which also includes Sondheim gems "Good Thing Going", "Not A Day Goes By" and "Old Friends".

Stay tuned to BroadwayWorld for even more about MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG in the coming days as we anticipate the big screen premiere of this expertly played and filmed West End revival hit.

MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG will be presented in Fathom-equipped movie theaters nationwide on October 23. More information is available at the official site here.
