Video: MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG Celebrates Surprise Cast Album Release


The New Broadway Cast Recording of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG is out tonight Wednesday, November 15, 2023 at 12:01AM ET. See the cast celebrate their surprise cast album release below!

The physical CD is set for release on January 12, 2024 and available now for preorder. Produced by David Caddick, David Lai, Joel Fram and Maria Friedman, the album was recorded  and mixed by Ian Kagey at Berklee at PowerStationNYC and Renaissance Recording NY. The New Broadway Cast Recording includes new liner notes from Director and Album Producer Maria Friedman as well as former New York Times Chief Theater Critic, Ben  Brantley.  

“Merrily We Roll Along’s initial short run may have been nothing but a footnote in the illustrious career of Stephen Sondheim without the preservation of his amazing score on the Original Broadway Cast Recording,” says Scott Farthing, EVP of Sony  Masterworks U.S. “How amazing that over 40 years later, Masterworks Broadway had the opportunity to memorialize the  musical’s celebrated new revival to live alongside the iconic original album.” 

Starring Daniel Radcliffe as Charley Kringas, Jonathan Groff as Franklin Shepard, and Lindsay Mendez as Mary Flynn, MERRILY WE  ROLL ALONG also features Krystal Joy Brown as Gussie Carnegie, Katie Rose Clarke as Beth Shepard, and Reg Rogers as Joe Josephson.  The company includes Calvin James Davis, Max Rackenberg, Brady Wagner, Sherz Aletaha, Maya Boyd, Leana Rae Concepcion,  Morgan Kirner, Ken Krugman, Corey Mach, Talia Simone Robinson, Amanda Rose, Jamila Sabares-Klemm, Brian Sears, Evan  Alexander Smith, Christian Strange, Koray Tarhan, Vishal Vaidya, Natalie Wachen, and Jacob Keith Watson

MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG is directed by multi-Olivier Award® winner Maria Friedman, features music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim,  a book by George Furth, and is based on the original play by George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart. Merrily We Roll Along officially  opened on Tuesday, October 10 and runs for a strictly limited engagement through March 24, 2024 at the Hudson Theatre (141 W  44th Street). 

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.
