NOT A LIVE EVENT! SHOWING ON OUR BIG SCREEN. THIS IS A FILMED RECORDING OF A LIVE PRODUCTION!
SpectiCast, in association with CinemaLive and Digital Theatre, is thrilled to present the acclaimed revival of Stephen Sondheim’s MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG from London’s West End.
Triple Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman makes her thrilling directorial debut with this vibrant, full scale production and exceptional cast led by Mark Umbers, Jenna Russell and Damian Humbley.
Set over three decades in the entertainment business MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG charts the relationship between three close friends Franklin, Mary and Charley.
Travelling backwards in time, this powerful and moving story features some of Stephen Sondheim’s most beautiful songs including “Good Thing Going,” “Not a Day Goes By” and “Old Friends.”
MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG was captured during the productions final performances at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre, which followed a sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
“This production of MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG is not only the best I’ve seen, but one of those rare instances where casting, direction and show come together in perfect combination, resulting in the classic ideal of the sum being greater than the parts.” – Stephen Sondheim
