"Join some of the Great White Way’s most talented performers as we honor this great Stephen Sondheim score for one night only!" press notes state. "It may have only run for a few weeks, but
Merrily We Roll Along continues to fascinate & inspire, especially amongst Broadway folk."
Based on the play by
George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, Merrily We Roll Along features a score by Sondheim and a book by Furth. Concerning the lives of three friends — composer Franklin Shepard, lyricist Charley Kringas and writer Mary Flynn — the musical is told backwards in time and boasts such classic Sondheim tunes as "Like It Was," "Not a Day Goes By," "Good Thing Going," "Now You Know," "Our Time" and "Old Friends."
The musical bowed on Broadway at the Alvin Theatre on Nov. 16, 1981, where it ran for only 16 performances. The original cast included
Jim Walton, Ann Morrison, Lonny Price, Terry Finn, Jason Alexander, Tonya Pinkins, Daisy Prince and Liz Callaway.
