Review: CAROUSEL Has June Bustin' Out All Over at Broadway At Music Circus Photo Review: CAROUSEL Has June Bustin' Out All Over at Broadway At Music Circus
by Courtney Symes - Jun 30, 2022

The world has changed a lot since 1945, when Carousel opened on Broadway.  The Tony Awards hadn’t been established yet.  Interracial marriage was not yet legal.  Its score speaks of a bygone era when people comported themselves with a certain modesty and societal rules were very different.  One would wonder how such a show has survived through the years, but Rodgers and Hammerstein’s second musical has themes that are relevant today.  Domestic violence, poor choices, hope, and redemption are all things that society still experiences.
