BWW TV: Sneak Peek at Maria Friedman's MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG; Plays in Theaters on 10/23
Maria Friedman's award-winning production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's "Merrily We Roll Along" is set to screen in 460 select movie theaters around the country on October 23rd. Below, BroadwayWorld brings you a special look at the production!
With music and lyrics by renowned American composer and lyricist Sondheim and book by George Furth, "Merrily We Roll Along" transferred to the West End's Harold Pinter Theatre following a sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory. The production received more five-star reviews than any other musical in West End history and won the 2012 Critics' Circle Award for Best Musical.
Starting in 1980 and travelling backwards in time, this powerful and moving story - an emotionally charged journey through the lives of three friends - features some of Sondheim's most beautiful songs including "Good Thing Going," "Not a Day Goes By" and "Old Friends." Triple Oliver Award-winner Maria Friedman makes a thrilling directorial debut with this vibrant, full-scale production with an exceptional cast led byMark Umbers, Jenna Russell and Damian Humbley.
