Merrily We Roll Along, book by George Furth, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Craig A. Humphrey, Musical Direction by Mindy Cox

Merrily We Roll Along 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. With wit, humor and the intensity that embodies the spirit of New York City and a brilliant Broadway-style score, it is a spirited and moving musical about friendship, compromise and the high price of success.
