Broadway revival of Merrily We Roll Along to begin performances in September

The highly anticipated Broadway revival of Merrily We Roll Along will begin performances at the Hudson Theatre on Tuesday, September 19.

Playing for a strictly limited 18-week engagement, this first ever Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s musical will star Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter fame) as Charley Kringas, Jonathan Groff (Mindhunter, Glee, Spring Awakening, Hamilton) as Franklin Shepard, and Tony Award winner Lindsay Mendez (Wicked, Carousel) as Mary Flynn.

Directed by multi-Olivier Award winner Maria Friedman, Merrily We Roll Along features music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, a book by George Furth, and is based on the original play by George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart.

The cast also featurs Krystal Joy Brown as Gussie Carnegie, Katie Rose Clarke as Beth Shepard, and Reg Rogers as Joe Josephson. Rounding out the cast are Sherz Aletaha, Leana Rae Concepcion, Morgan Kirner, Corey Mach, Talia Robinson, Amanda Rose, Jamila Sabares-Klemm, Brian Sears, Evan Alexander Smith, Christian Strange, Koray Tarhan, Vishal Vaidya, Natalie Wachen, and Jacob Keith Watson.

The production recently enjoyed a critically acclaimed and completely sold-out run at New York Theatre Workshop, after its sold-out runs at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory and the Olivier Award-winning West End transfer at the Harold Pinter Theatre, all directed by Friedman.

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.

The creative teams include choreography by Tim Jackson and orchestrations by Tony Award winner Jonathan Tunick.

Merrily We Roll Along will be produced on Broadway by Sonia Friedman Productions, David Babani, Patrick Catullo, Jeff Romley, and New York Theatre Workshop. Broadway and UK theatre producer Sonia Friedman Productions also produced the first ever Broadway revival of Funny Girl, currently starring Lea Michelle.

It has not been announced if the show will transfer back to the UK.
