Toronto Musical Concerts to Present MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG In Concert 10/17
On Wednesday, October 17 and, Thursday, October 182018 at 7:30pm, Toronto Musical Concerts (TMC) presents a staged musical reading of Stephen Sondheim's MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG In Concert at the Al Green Theatre (Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre - 750 Spadina Ave).
Merrily We Roll Along In Concert is a compelling musical about friendship, compromise and the high price of success. Stephen Sondheim and George Furth combine the excitement and energy of a backstage musical with a poignant and emotional contemporary story about the importance of staying true to one's ideals.
Merrily We Roll Along begins in the present and moves backwards, tracing the lives of a wealthy, jaded composer, and his two estranged friends through each milestone of their personal and professional lives. The show ends with a touch of irony, as the three best friends at the start of their careers, face a bright future: young, talented and enthusiastic about the world waiting to be conquered.
