Merrily We Roll Along – Broadway

Following critical acclaim and a sell-out run at the New York Theatre Workshop, Merrily We Roll Along will be going to Broadway in 2023. 

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.

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 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.
