November 22 - December 18, 2016
The Wallis and Cody Lassen production of
MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG
music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim book by George Furth
directed by Michael Arden


Michael Arden, who brilliantly re-imagined The Wallis’ production of Spring Awakening with Deaf West Theatre that received rave reviews on Broadway, directs this rarely staged Stephen Sondheim (Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, West 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, ” “Old Friends” and “Not a Day Goes By.”

“An exceptional score… haunting melodies and dramatic ingenuity.” The New York Times
