The complete cast is set for the upcoming Off-Broadway return of Merrily We Roll Along. The Fiasco Theater production will play a limited engagement beginning January 12, 2019, at Roundabout Theatre Company's Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. Opening night is set for February 19.
Much like Fiasco's Into the Woods (presented by Roundabout in 2015), the staging will showcase a small ensemble cast to help bring the Stephen Sondheim and George Furth musical to life. Set to take the stage are Manu Narayan (recently seen on Broadway in My Fair Lady and Gettin' the Band Back Together) and Brittany Bradford (Bernhardt/Hamlet), who join the previously announced Fiasco Co-Artistic Directors Jessie Austrian and Ben Steinfeld and Fiasco company members Paul L. Coffey and Emily Young.
A third co-artistic director, Noah Brody, will helm the production, which will incorporate additional material lifted from George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart's 1934 play that inspired the 1981 musical.
The staging will feature choreography by Lorin Latarro, music direction and orchestrations by Alexander Gemignani, sets by Derek McLane, costumes by Paloma Young, lighting design by Christopher Akerlind, and sound design by Peter Hylenski.
