Highlights From the West End Revival of Merrily We Roll Along
Stephen Sondheim himself described the recent critically acclaimed West End revival of Merrily We Roll Along (directed by Olivier Award winner Maria Friedman) as "the best I've seen." The 1981 musical, with book by George Furth and score by Sondheim, travels backwards in time to navigate the bumpy history of three friends who start their careers in show business together. Recorded in High Definition from multiple camera angles, the production was screened in cinemas across the U.S. Oct. 23 by CinemaLive and Digital Theatre. The 7 screening also included backstage interviews with the cast. Visit Fathomevents.com for ticket information.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
