Producers Sonia Friedman Productions, David Babani, Patrick Catullo and Jeff Romley have announced that the critically acclaimed Menier Chocolate Factory and New York Theatre Workshop co-production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s much loved musical, Merrily We Roll Along, will now transfer to Broadway in Autumn 2023, marking the show’s first ever Broadway revival.
Merrily We Roll Along will star Daniel Radcliffe as Charley Kringas, Jonathan Groff as Franklin Shepard, and Lindsay Mendez as Mary Flynn. Additionally, the production will feature Krystal Joy Brown as Gussie Carnegie, Katie Rose Clarke as Beth Shepard, and Reg Rogers as Joe Josephson.
Directed by Olivier Award® winner Maria Friedman, Merrily We Roll Along features music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, a book by George Furth, and is based on the original play by George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart.

An inventive cult-classic ahead of its time, Merrily We Roll Along features some of Stephen Sondheim’s most celebrated and personal songs.
