Merrily We Roll Along transfers to West End from April 23rd

 

 

 

If you didn’t see it at the Menier, then I recommend catching it during the limited run at the Harold Pinter Theatre in April.  I really enjoyed it start to finish, but am afraid our theatre friends who shall remain unmentioned left at intermission.  They usually like the same things I do, so I’m hoping this was due to jet lag and that if they had another chance to see it they would better appreciate it.

From the Harold Pinter TheatreFollowing  a sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, the stunning musical revival of Merrily We Roll Along by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth embarks on an exclusive 12 week season at the Harold Pinter theatre from 23 April. This‘dazzling’ (D Telegraph) five star hit has been thrilling audiences with its ‘electrically alive’ (Independent) performances. Winner of the 2012 Critics’ Circle Best Musical award, this show is a must-see production.”

***** ‘Stunning’
Daily Express

***** ‘It’s impossible not to be moved’
Metro

***** ‘A superb production by Maria Friedman’
Times

***** ‘Breezily brilliant… perfectly pitched’
Sunday Express

Triple Olivier award-winner Maria Friedman makes an extraordinary directorial debut, with outstanding performances from a flawless cast, including Mark Umbers – ‘Impeccably played’ (Guardian),  Damian Humbley – ‘Terrific’ (Independent) and Olivier award-winner Jenna Russell – ‘Superb’ (Financial Times).

Set over three decades in the entertainment business Merrily We Roll Along charts the turbulent relationship between three friends Franklin, Charley and Mary. Starting in 1980 and travelling backwards in time, this powerful and moving story features some of Sondheim’s most beautiful songs including Good Thing GoingNot a Day Goes By and Old Friends.
