Frank, Charley and Mary are young, idealistic and ambitious. They begin their lives together gazing into the night sky, dreaming of Broadway success and changing the world. What has become of their hopes and desires twenty years later? As the years roll back from 1976 to 1957, the friends struggle to maintain their friendship in the face of shattered dreams and broken hearts.
A rarely performed masterpiece, Merrily We Roll Along combines a heart aching score and storyline with the finest actors and singers in Cambridge.
