Rodgers and Hammerstein's timeless musical Carousel returns to Broadway for the first time in more than two decades, in a new production starring Tony Award nominee Joshua Henry (Hamilton, Shuffle Along), Tony winner Jessie Mueller (Beautiful, Waitress), and Renée Fleming in her first-ever appearance in a Broadway musical. Three-time Tony winner Jack O'Brien (The Front Page, The Coast of Utopia) directs, with choreography by New York City Ballet's Justin Peck. Elevated to an epic scale with a sweeping musical score and incandescent ballet sequences, this story of passion, loss and redemption introduced Broadway to a new manner of musical drama when it premiered in 1945, and it has captivated theatergoers for generations.
SYNOPSIS: Brash carousel barker Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan, a quiet girl who works in the mill, fall in love, marry, and have a stormy relationship that leads to tragedy and an attempt at mending old wounds from beyond the grave, in Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical adaptation of Ferenc Molnar's play, Liliom.
