“It's our time, breathe it in... Worlds to change and worlds to win”

Spanning three decades in the entertainment business and told in reverse order, Merrily We Roll Along charts the turbulent relationship between composer Franklin Shepard and his two lifelong friends — writer Mary and lyricist & playwright Charley. 

A powerful, moving, thrilling and compelling fable about friendship, compromise and the high price of success.

 An inventive, cult-classic ahead of its time, Merrily We Roll Along features some of Stephen Sondheim’s most celebrated, personal and beautiful songs including “Good Thing Going”, “Not A Day Goes By” and “Our Time”. 

This unmissable Musical Comedy is a spirited and cautionary tale for anyone who has ever pursued a dream. 

Originally opening on Broadway in 1981, and having countless revivals and and revisions along the way, Merrily We Roll Along found great success in 2013 when London’s Menier Chocolate Factory produced the production, which subsequently transferred to the Harold Pinter Theatre to critical acclaim - the most five-star reviews in West End history - and winning the Olivier Award for Best Musical. It has most recently returned to Broadway, starring Daniel Radcliffe.
