Description: 

Merrily We Roll Along is a powerful, touching musical about Broadway composer and Hollywood producer Frank Shepard, playwright Charley Kringas, and theater critic Mary Flynn. The show opens in 1976 at a film premiere and ends in 1957, giving audiences the chance to journey backwards through the trio’s lives, witnessing—in reverse—Frank’s meteoric rise to fame and the deterioration of his friendship with Charley and Mary. While the beginning of the show is a picture of broken bonds, the end of the show is a heart-warming and heart-wrenching scene of blossoming friendship. “Our Time” foretells a future for the three that we know did not come to be. But could it be different for the next Frank, Mary, and Charley?

Come join our company of new “old friends” as we “open doors” together in The Dramat’s production of Merrily We Roll Along.
