Synopsis

Stephen Sondheim's "Merrily We Roll Along" opened in November 1981 to scathing reviews and closed after just 16 performances. Despite its inauspicious beginnings, the musical's score has grown to become one of the composer's most beloved. Archival footage of the rehearsals along with interviews with the cast - Jason Alexander, Jim Walton, Ann Morrison and Tonya Pinkins - as well as Sondheim himself and director Harold Prince tell the tale of this infamous production.
