Following critical acclaim and a sell-out run at the New York Theatre Workshop, Merrily We Roll Along will be playing on Broadway from 19th September 2023.
Broadway never saw a better triple-act than Daniel Radcliffe, Jonathan Groff and Lindsay Mendez.
Spanning three decades in the entertainment business, Merrily We Roll Along charts the turbulent relationship between composer Franklin Shepard and his two lifelong friends — writer Mary and lyricist & playwright Charley. An inventive, cult-classic ahead of its time, Merrily We Roll Along features some of Stephen Sondheim’s most celebrated and personal songs.
Maria Friedman's inspired re-invention of Merrily We Roll Along makes Broadway - and Sondheim - feel newly and fully alive again.
The wildly anticipated Broadway transfer of Maria Friedman’s hugely acclaimed Menier Chocolate Factory & New York Theatre Workshop production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s beloved and eternally celebrated musical ‘Merrily We Roll Along’ will begin performances on Tuesday 19th September 2023 at the Hudson Theatre.
Featuring music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, a book by George Furth, and based on the original play by George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart. Directed by Olivier Award winner Maria Friedman and choreographed by Tim Jackson, Merrily We Roll Along is presented by special arrangement with Sonia Friedman Productions, the Menier Chocolate Factory (Artistic Director, David Babani), and Patrick Catullo, and will star Daniel Radcliffe as Charley.
Maria Friedman first directed the musical at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory which subsequently transferred to the Harold Pinter Theatre to critical acclaim—the most five-star reviews in West End history—winning the Olivier Award for Best Musical.
As close to perfect as Broadway gets.
