The Boca Raton Theatre Guild Presents The Rodgers & Hammerstein Classic 'Carousel'
by Beau Higgins - Feb 11, 2010

Adapted for the American stage from Ferenc Molnar's 1909 play, Liliom, Carousel was one of the first musicals to contain a tragic plot. It is also unique among Rodgers and Hammerstein's works in that it does not have an overture, but begins with the Carousel Waltz.

Time Magazine named it the best musical of the 20th Century. (more...)
