Merrily We Roll Along looks back over the lives of three “Old Friends”; Franklin Shepard, Charles Kringas and Mary Flynn, as we travel back through time starting in 1976 at Frank’s party where Mary and Frank’s friendship is finally ended and finishing in 1957 when they were just starting out on their journey. The story looks back over the main events in their careers and lives and has many highs and lows along the way!
In the beginning Frank was a youthful, and passionate songwriter but later as he became more successful, rich and famous he began abandoning his first love, music, to become a commercial movie producer. His closest friends Charley; Frank’s collaborator and Mary; a talented writer, were disgusted with this.
Originally a play by George Kaufman and Moss Hart, Stephen Sondheim and George Furth transformed it into the emotional yet humorous musical it is today. With great music, great dancing, great acting as well as this interesting and original storyline how can you refuse?
Franklin Shepherd: Paul Cross
