The Downing Film Center will offer two screenings of Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along. SpectiCast, in association with CinemaLive and Digital Theatre, presents this revival from London’s West End.
Set over three decades in the entertainment business, Merrily We Roll Along charts the relationship between three close friends Franklin, Mary and Charley. Travelling backward in time, this story features some of Sondheim’s most notable songs including Good Thing Going, Not a Day Goes By and Old Friends.
Merrily We Roll Along was captured during the production’s final performances at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre, which followed a sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
Merrily We Roll Along screenings take place at noon on Saturday, Jan. 18, and at 7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 19. The film is not rated but can be treated as PG.
Ticket prices are general admission $10, members $8. Tickets can be purchased at the box office or at downingfilmcenter.com. Call 845-561-3686. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
