This production refreshingly emphasizes the improbable triumph of rough, combustible parts assembled into glistening smoothness.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

Why See Merrily We Roll Along?

MusicalsOff Broadway Shows

From Fiasco Theater

After the storming success of their Into the Woods, Roundabout's resident company, Fiasco Theater, present another Stephen Sondheim classic. The story of friendships put through the show business ringer, Merrily Roll Along boasts a tricksy, non-linear narrative and some of Sondheim's most playful numbers, including 'Rich and Happy,' and 'Franklin Shepard, Inc.'

Written in collaboration with George Furth, Merrily We Roll Along premiered on Broadway in 1981, where it was met with less than ecstatic reviews. However, the show's reputation has steadily grown over the years, and with Fiasco's talent for paring back musicals to their most essential elements, this 2019 staging promises to be revelatory.

What Is Merrily We Roll Along About?

In 1976, songwriter and producer Franklin Shepard is on top of the world. However, his rise to glory was not an easy one, and Merrily We Roll Along takes us on a journey back through his previous two decades in show business. In particular, it focuses on his relatioships with writing partner Charles Kingras and author Mary Flynn, and the tensions that grow between them as Franklin pursues fame and fortune.
