Carousel On Broadway

CarouselOne of my favorite songwriting teams of all time is Rodger's and Hammerstein. From Oklahoma, to The Sound of Music, they are without question the "Godfather's of Musical Theatre". I mean let's face it. Without them there would be no Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, or Lin-Manuel Miranda. Now here we are eighty-five years since their first show premiered on the Great White Way, and one of the theatre's most beloved shows of all time is set to return home.

Carousel, which first opened in 1945, is set to begin previews at the Imperial Theatre on February 28, with opening night scheduled for April 12. Now I know what you're thinking. Why does a show that opened seventy-three years ago need six weeks of previews? I mean it's not like they need to do a bunch of rewrites right? Carousel is about as perfect as it gets my friends.

The show, which is being directed by three-time Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien (Hairspray, The Coast of Utopia), and choreographed by New York City Ballet's Resident Choreographer Justin Peck, stars Tony Award winner Jessie Mueller (Beautiful, Waitress). Tony Award nominee Joshua Henry (Shuffle Along, Hamilton), Lindsay Melendez (Godspell, Wicked), and Opera legend Renee Fleming. Now that is what I call an all-star cast. Tickets for the highly anticipated revival are now on sale. Not only that, but we sell them. Get your tickets to see Carousel on Broadway at the Imperial Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
