The cast will also feature A.J. Shively (La Cage aux Folles), Lauren Marcus, Sarah Cline, David Fanning and Evan Fine; as well as ensemble members Emma Camp, Mac Cherny, Jack Flatley, Elena Juliano, Naree Ketudat, Alyssa Lundberg, Mac Myles, Stephanie Meadowcroft, Megan Mistretta, Thomas Prast and Owen Russell.

Directed by John Simpkins with choreography by Jennifer Werner and music direction by Eric Kang, the production will run from July 15-19.

From the creators of Company, Furth and Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along follows the life of wealthy composer Franklin and his friends--in reverse. Beginning at the height of his fame in 1976, the musical traces the story of how he achieved his status back to 1957. Inspired by the 1934 play of the same title by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, the show features many well-known Sondheim’s songs including "Good Thing Going," "Not a Day Goes By" and "Old Friends."

Merrily We Roll Along opened on Broadway in 1981 with a cast that included Jason Alexander, Tonya Pinkins, Liz Callaway, Jim Walton, Lonny Price and Ann Morrison.
