The first Broadway revival of “Merrily We Roll Along” has set an opening-night date of Oct. 10. Maria Friedman will direct the previously announced production, scheduled to begin previews on Sept. 19 and run for a limited engagement through March 24, 2024, at the Hudson Theatre.
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. The musical features a book by George Furth and a score by Stephen Sondheim.
The mounting, which made its New York debut at Off-Broadway’s New York Theatre Workshop in 2022, will again star Jonathan Groff as Franklin Shepard, Lindsay Mendez as Mary Flynn and Daniel Radcliffe as Charley Kringas. Also featured in the principal cast will be Krystal Joy Brown as Gussie, Katie Rose Clarke as Beth and Reg Rogers as Joe.
“Merrily We Roll Along” is being produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, David Babani, Patrick Catullo, Jeff Romley and New York Theatre Workshop.
