New Orleans’ most historic playhouse presents Merrily We Roll Along for the final show of its 98th Anniversary Season. Tom Cianfichi directs the sophisticated and time-bending musical favorite by Stephen Sondheim (Into the Woods, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd) and George Furth (Company), based on the play by George S. Kaufmann and Moss Hart.
Traveling backward through time, Merrily We Roll Along traces the friendship of composer Franklin Shepard and his two best friends through each defining moment of their lives. Their journey crackles with wit and humor while showcasing one of the greatest musical scores in the American theatre.
