One of the truly legendary musicals in the history of Broadway, MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG, opened to enormous fanfare in 1981, and closed after just 16 performances.
For the first time, BEST WORST THING THAT EVER COULD HAVE HAPPENED, draws back the curtain on the extraordinary drama of the show’s creation, and tells the stories of the hopeful young performers whose lives were transformed by it. Featuring exclusive appearances by Stephen Sondheim, Hal Prince, Jason Alexander, Mandy Patinkin, Adam Guettel, Frank Rich and the original Broadway Cast of Merrily We Roll Aong.
Join original Broadway Cast members Jim Walton (currently starring in Opera North’s “Kiss Me Kate”) and David Cady for a special one performance screening, and talk back at the Town Hall Theatre in Woodstock Vermont.
