Director Maria Friedman’s stunning London production of Merrily We Roll Along received universal rave reviews – the most five star reviews in West End history – and the Olivier Award for Best Musical. Now she recreates it for Boston audiences! Travelling backwards in time over 20 years in the entertainment business, this legendary, cult favorite musical charts the relationships of close friends Franklin, Charley, and Mary, and features some of Sondheim’s most beautiful songs, including “Good Thing Going,” “Old Friends,” and “Not a Day Goes By."

Approximate run time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission. Please note: This production includes theatrical haze and smoke, strobe light effects, and the smoking of herbal cigarettes.



Stephen Sondheim“This production of Merrily We Roll Along is not only the best I've seen, but one of those rare instances where casting, direction, and show come together in perfect combination, resulting in the classic ideal of the sum being greater than the parts.”— Stephen Sondheim on Maria Friedman’s London production

 

Peter DuBois“After seeing Maria Friedman’s stunning staging of Merrily We Roll Along at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London, I knew I had to share this tremendous production with Boston. Maria has captured lightning in a bottle, turning a musical long beloved by Sondheim geeks into an international hit. I can’t wait for her to recreate the definitive and mesmerizing version of Merrily for Boston audiences with the best of Boston, New York, and international talent. Put this show on the calendar in pen!”— Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois
