Michael Arden, who brilliantly re-imagined The Wallis and Deaf West Theatre's production of Spring Awakening that received rave reviews on Broadway, directs this rarely staged Stephen Sondheim (Into the WoodsSweeney ToddWest Side Story) musical. Merrily We Roll Along travels backwards in time to navigate the bumpy history among three friends - Franklin, Charlie and Mary - who begin their in careers in show business together. The powerful and moving story, based on the Kaufman and Hart play, features some of Sondheim’s most beautiful songs including "Good Thing Going," "Our Time" and "Not a  Day Goes By". 

The performance is 2 hours and 30 minutes, including a 15 minute intermission. 

"A first-class production with an outstanding cast. GO!" - Performing Arts Live

Michael Arden, man of the moment in L.A. theater, stages a revival of a famously 'troubled' musical - Los Angeles Times

Venue: BRAM GOLDSMITH THEATER
