Sondheim's musical presented by Guildhall School

“Another Barbican musical has made our list this week. This classic Sondheim musical is being presented by Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Told in reverse, it’s the story of a brilliant New York composer and his fractious relationship with two estranged friends. A chance to see some of Britain’s top young performers.”


Guildhall is proud to present Merrily We Roll Along, the School’s first production of the musical since giving its 1983 European premiere.

Set in New York, the story follows the lives of a successful but disillusioned composer and his two estranged friends in reverse chronology, with the clock ticking backwards from 1976 to 1957. A brilliantly melodic score coupled with Sondheim’s sharp and piquant observations of human frailty makes for a witty and poignant story about the importance of staying true to one’s hopes and aspirations.
