Merrily We Roll Along is the heartbreaker of Sondheim musicals, looking at how the best of friends lose their way as they fight to win at life.
It follows a trio of friends – composer Franklin Shepard, his writing partner lyricist Charley Kringas and upcoming novelist Mary Flynn.
The three are primed to change the world through words and music, however success has a way of opening doors that take them further away from what – and who – they love. Famously told in reverse, Merrily We Roll Along is an emotional detective story that investigates how grown-up sellouts are forged from wide-eyed poets.
Elise McCann, Ainsley Melham and Andrew Coshan feature, with Georgina Hopson, Aaron Tsindos, Tiarne Sue Yek, Evan Lever and Vidya Makan.
The creative team is led by the award winning team that gave the Hayes Sweet Charity and Little Shop of Horrors, director Dean Bryant, choreographer Andrew Hallsworth and musical director Andrew Worboys. They will be joined by set designer Jeremy Allen, costume designer Mel Liertz, lighting designer Veronique Bennett and sound designer Dave Bergman.
