Carousel To Return To Broadway Next Season

Image result for carousel broadway logoNow let me just start off by saying that I am a huge Rodger's and Hammerstein fan. I have been ever since I saw The Sound of Music in the fifth grade. That was the movie version mind you. Not the stage production. In fact the first Rodger's and Hammerstein musical that I saw on stage was Carousel.

Now here we are thirty years later and I will finally get to see it again. Only this time it will be on Broadway as opposed to a hot gymnasium in Southern Illinois. The show, which first premiered on Broadway in 1945, is set to open on March 23, 2018. Starring in the leading roles of Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan, are Tony nominee Joshua Henry (Hamilton), and Tony winner Jessie Mueller (Waitress).

Joining them in this beloved musical is opera legend Renee Fleming as Nettie Fowler. Now that is what I call great casting. Directing the show is three-time Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien (Hairspray), with choreography by Justin Peck, who is currently the resident choreographer at the New York City Ballet. As of now no theatre or on sale date has been announced. Stay tuned to this blog for future updates. Until next time theatre fans.
