The Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of “Merrily We Roll Along” is being filmed for posterity, according to a production spokesperson.

Signs were recently posted outside the Hudson Theatre, home of the Stephen Sondheim-George Furth musical, indicating filming scheduled to occur on June 17 and 18.

There are currently no plans for a release or distribution. Broadway News will follow this developing story.

Maria Friedman directs the production, which began previews on Sept. 19, 2023, and opened on Oct. 10. The twice-extended musical will continue for a limited run through July 7. Featuring a score by Sondheim and a book by Furth, “Merrily” follows a trio of artists as they explore the complicated intersection of friendship and show business.

The production received seven 2024 Tony Award nominations, winning four, including Best Musical Revival, Leading Actor in a Musical (Jonathan Groff), Featured Actor in a Musical (Daniel Radcliffe) and Orchestrations (Jonathan Tunick).

Additionally, the revival released a cast recording and recouped its $12 million capitalization.

“Merrily We Roll Along” is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, David Babani, Patrick Catullo, Jeff Romley and New York Theatre Workshop.
