About Merrily We Roll Along
Following a sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, the stunning musical revival of Merrily We Roll Along by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth embarks on an exclusive 12 week season at the Harold Pinter theatre from 23 April. This “dazzling” (Daily Telegraph) five star hit has been thrilling audiences with its “electrically alive” (Independent) performances. Winner of the 2012 Critics' Circle Best Musical award, this show is a must-see production.
***** “Stunning” - Daily Express
***** “It's impossible not to be moved” - Metro
***** “A superb production by Maria Friedman” - Times
***** “Breezily brilliant... perfectly pitched” - Sunday Express
‘The most intelligent, gripping, brilliant musical in town, perfectly realised. Anyone with a heart should come out reeling.’ - The Times
Triple Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman makes an extraordinary directorial debut, with outstanding performances from a flawless cast, including Mark Umbers – “impeccably played” (Guardian), Damian Humbley – “terrific” (Independent) and Olivier Award-winner Jenna Russell – “superb” (Financial Times).
Set over three decades in the entertainment business, Merrily We Roll Along charts the turbulent relationship between three friends Franklin, Charley and Mary. Starting in 1980 and travelling backwards in time, this powerful and moving story features some of Sondheim's most beautiful songs including Good Thing Going, Not a Day Goes By and Old Friends.
