Merrily We Roll Along is the heartbreaker of Sondheim musicals, looking at how the best of friends lose their way as they ght to win at life. We follow a trio of friends – Franklin Shepard, a composer; Charley Kringas, his writing partner lyricist; and Mary Flynn, an upcoming novelist. All 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.
The show will be created by a multi-award winning team of director Dean Bryant (Sweet Charity, Assassins, Little Shop of Horrors), choreographer Andrew Hallsworth (Muriel’s Wedding, Sweet Charity) and musical director Lucy Bermingham (In The Heights, Caroline, Or Change).
