Notes and Editorial Reviews

2012 two CD set. Merrily We Roll Along, composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim and bookwriter George Furth's first collaboration following their landmark Company, opened on Broadway in 1981 to some of the most savage reviews of Sondheim's career, closing after a run of only 16 performances.

In 2012, New York City Center's Encores! series premiered this new version of Merrily We Roll Along. Read less
