Winner of the Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical (New or Revival), the Menier Chocolate Factory’s production of Merrily We Roll Along, directed by Maria Friedman, transfers to the Harold Pinter Theatre from 23 April for a strictly limited 12-week season.

Based on the play by Kaufman and Hart, Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s musical charts the turbulent relationship between three friends, Franklin, Charley and Mary, over three decades. Starting in 1980 and travelling backwards in time, this powerful and moving story features some of Sondheim’s most beautiful songs including ‘Good Thing Going’, ‘Not a Day Goes By’ and ‘Old Friends’.

Merrily We Roll Along ran from 23rd April to 27th July 2013.
