“How did you get to be here?…” asks Merrily We Roll Along, as it takes us on a journey backwards in time, tracing the lives of three close friends through the best and worst milestones of their personal and professional lives. We meet three highly successful, yet deeply unhappy individuals and travel with them down life’s often bumpy road to the start of their careers facing a bright future together as a trio: young, talented, and enthusiastic about the worlds waiting to be conquered. With the wit, humor, and the intensity that embody the spirit of New York City and a brilliant "Broadway-style" score, Merrily We Roll Along is a spirited and moving story about friendship, compromise, and the high price of success—a cautionary tale for anyone who has ever pursued a dream.
Merrily We Roll Along was previously produced at IPFW in October 2005.
In commemorating IPFW’s 50th Celebration, the Department of Theatre looks back at some past favorites and looks forward to new horizons. This season we present four productions that embrace the concepts of memory, dreams, and self-realization, along with a bonus fifth production: a new staging of The Imaginary Invalid, the very first play produced at IPFW.
