About This Production
Time turns backwards in Merrily We Roll Along, the George Furth and Stephen Sondheim musical based on the 1934 play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. Audiences meet Frank Shepard at the height of his career as a Hollywood movie producer—a far cry from the passionate Broadway composer he once was. Long gone are his ties to his lyricist collaborator, Charley Kringas, who just won a Pulitzer for his latest play. And hanging by a thread is his friendship with Mary Flynn, another old pal saddened by the fact that Frank sold out on the road to commercial success. As events play out in reverse, it’s revealed that this torn-apart trio was once inseparable.
With State of the Art’s one-of-a-kind imagination, this audacious musical about a trio of showbiz friends who fall apart and come together over 20 years emerges as newly personal and passionate.
