Roundabout will present Fiasco Theater’s new production of Merrily We Roll Along featuring a book by George Furth and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Merrily We Roll Along is based on and with additional material from the original play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart.
With Fiasco’s one-of-a-kind imagination, this audacious musical about a trio of friends in showbiz who fall apart and come together over two decades emerges as newly personal and passionate. The ensemble brings to life a reimagination of Furth and Sondheim’s creation in an emotionally rich new production that confronts the pains and pleasures of fame, fortune, and old friends.
Roundabout reunites with the acclaimed Fiasco Theater following their 2015 production of Into the Woods, which Entertainment Weekly called “Pure Stage Magic! A wildly inventive, emotionally gut-punching, delightfully off-kilter production” and Ben Brantley of The New York Times exclaimed “Truly enchanting…. I fell head over heels.”
