Preview performances began on Wednesday, February 28 and Carousel officially opened on Thursday, April 12, 2018.
Before the carousel makes its final rotation, we're flashing back to the show's journey on Broadway.
Previews began at the Imperial theatre on February 28, 2018.
And the company took their opening night bows on April 12.
On May 1, it was announced that the show earned eleven Tony nominations, including nods for Mueller, Henry, Fleming, Gemignani, Mendez and Justin Peck's choreography.
On June 12, Lindsay Mendez took home a Tony for her performance as Carrie Pipperidge. Later this summer, she was honored with a portrait at Sardi's.

But the cast has continued to put their on spin on the classic songs.
And they will live on! Happy trails, Carousel.
