Merrily We Roll Along - HD Live

Hello "musical lovers",

Here is a once in a lifetime event:

Steven Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along
  November 7, 2013

Set over three decades in the entertainment business Merrily We Roll Along charts the relationship between three friends Franklin, Mary and Charley. Travelling backwards in time, this powerful and moving story features some of Stephen Sondheim’s most beautiful songs including ‘Good Thing Going’, ‘Not a Day Goes By’ and ‘Old Friends’. 

Mary and Leo? I have checked it out for you, It is on at Silvercity in Ottawa.  Look for your local time and the exactly spot.  One day only.  Though a different genre, I think it is going to rival the recent MacBeth you saw in HD Live.

To all -- if you are a reader of this blog and the parents of my grandchildren, I command you to take your kids to this show.  The more children you have, the more it is going to cost you.  On the other hand, if you have ever wished to take your kids to London and see  musical theatre there -- for your money, this evening will give you the same bang

  1. Marcia and I saw Merrily We Roll Along on stage in London. Fabulous Music! Greg and I are opting out of spending the night with Kalina and Theresa to go to the Merrily...Charise will spend the evening with the two girls because Lurene and Tim are in rehearsal for band.

  2. A five star musical. I do love musicals. Any ideas for a musical I can introduce David to would relate to his current enthusiasm: nerf gun wars?
