This Week's Top Off-Broadway Shows

Broadway Buying Guide: November 7, 2022 1) Merrily We Roll Along Buy Tickets - Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Jonathan Groff, and Lindsay Mendez! Spanning three decades in the entertainment business, Merrily We Roll Along charts the turbulent relationship between composer Franklin Shepard and his two lifelong friends - writer Mary and lyricist & playwright Charley. An inventive, cult-classic ahead of its time, Merrily We Roll Along features some of Stephen Sondheim's most celebrated and personal songs. Maria Friedman first directed the musical at London's Menier Chocolate Factory which subsequently transferred to the Harold Pinter Theatre to critical acclaim-the most five-star reviews in West End history-winning the Olivier Award for Best Musical.

Broadway Buying Guide: November 7, 2022 2) The Far Country Buy Tickets Tickets from: $60 - An intimate epic that follows an unlikely family's journey from rural Taishan to the wild west of California in the wake of the Chinese Exclusion Act.

Broadway Buying Guide: November 7, 2022 4) Straight Line Crazy Buy Tickets Tickets from: $149 - Following an acclaimed run this spring at the Bridge Theatre in London, *Straight Line Crazy*, a new play by David Hare, will have its exclusive US engagement this fall at The Shed. Starring Ralph Fiennes as Robert Moses and directed by Nicholas Hytner (*One Man, Two Guvnors*) and Jamie Armitage (*Six*), the play delves into Moses's questionable legacy and enduring impact on New York City. For 40 uninterrupted years, Moses was among the most powerful men in New York as he envisioned and built public works whose aftereffects determine how New Yorkers experience the city to this day. These public works were often realized at the expense of disempowered New Yorkers, particularly people of color, living in the way of and near his projects. The play presents an imagined retelling of the arc of Moses's controversial career in two decisive moments: his rise to power in the late 1920s and the public outcry against the corrosive effects of that power in the mid-1950s.

Broadway Buying Guide: November 7, 2022 10) Candida Buy Tickets Tickets from: $39 - George Bernard Shaw's pithy romantic comedy, CANDIDA, makes its return to NYC for the first time in more than 20 years to delight audiences eager for the wicked wit of GBS...from NY's Shaw experts at Gingold Theatrical Group! CANDIDA by Bernard Shaw. This incredibly taut romantic comedy by Bernard Shaw will be reset from London 1894 to Harlem 1929. It's a time of global upheaval and these six characters come together on one tumultuous day to redefine not only who they are but how to launch into the world in a new way. Written as a response to Ibsen's A DOLL'S HOUSE, this short but pithy comedy races along in ever-surprising ways. The Reverend James Morell and his wife Candida live a comfortable life until the young poet, Marchbanks, is taken into their home and challenges everything they'd built their lives upon. This dynamic and surprising comedy is one of Shaw's most popular and entertaining plays, which then went on to inspire Anderson's TEA AND SYMPATHY. With CANDIDA, Shaw created the bold template from which grew what we now know as the sit-com! It's a whirlwind single day in the life of six wildly-diverse individuals! Amusing, witty, romantic, and insightful, it is often mentioned as an audience favorite!
