MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG San Francisco Bay Area October 2011
YMTC's Production of MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG!
One of Sondheim's lesser known gems. When this show was first produced on Broadway, Stephen Sondheim and Hal Prince cast teenagers in all the roles. It was, in fact, conceived with teenagers in mind. Sondheim says this about it in his book, Finishing the Hat, "What we envisioned was a cautionary tale in which actors in their late teens and early twenties would begin disguised as middle-aged sophisticates and gradually become their innocent young selves as the evening progressed."
