The original Broadway production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's Merrily We Roll Along officially opened on Nov. 16, 1981. Here, we take a look back at that Merrily, some subsequent productions and the 2002 cast reunion.
The show played the Alvin Theatre, in a production staged by Harold Prince, running 52 previews and 16 performances.
The cast featured Jim Walton (Franklin Shepard), Lonny Price (Charley), Ann Morrison (Mary), Terry Finn (Gussie), Jason Alexander (Joe) and Sally Klein (Beth).
Special thank you to Jennifer Ashley Tepper, David L. Snyder, Terry Finn and Abigail Pogrebin.
