Brittany Bradford & Manu Narayan complete the cast of Fiasco Theater's Merrily We Roll Along at Roundabout
Merrily We Roll Along begins performances at off-Broadway's Laura Pels Theatre on January 12, 2019.
Casting is now complete for the upcoming Fiasco Theater production of Merrily We Roll Along, presented by Roundabout Theatre Company, which is scheduled to play a limited engagement at the Laura Pels Theatre from January 12 through to April 7, 2019, with an official opening on February 19.
Joining previously announced Fiasco Theater company members Jessie Austrian (Fiasco, Co-Artistic Director), Paul L. Coffey, Ben Steinfeld (Fiasco, Co-Artistic Director) and Emily Young will be Brittany Bradford and Manu Narayan.
Ms. Bradford can currently be seen in Roundabout Theatre Company's world premiere of Bernhardt/Hamlet on Broadway, whilst Mr. Narayan's recent Broadway credits include Gettin' the Band Back Together and Lincoln Center Theater's revival of My Fair Lady. He is perhaps best known for portraying the leading role of Aakash in AR Rahman’s Bombay Dreams on Broadway.
Following on from the success of the Roundabout/Fiasco collaboration with the 2015 production of Into the Woods, Merrily We Roll Along is directed by Fiasco Co-Artistic Director Noah Brody.
Based on and with additional material from the original play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, Merrily We Roll Along features music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by George Furth.
Synopsis: "With Fiasco’s one-of-a-kind imagination, this audacious musical about a trio of friends in showbiz who fall apart and come together over two decades emerges as newly personal and passionate. The ensemble brings to life a reimagination of Furth and Sondheim’s creation in an emotionally rich new production that confronts the pains and pleasures of fame, fortune, and old friends."
The creative team for the production also features music direction & orchestrations by Alexander Gemignani, choreography by Lorin Latarro, scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Paloma Young, lighting design by Christopher Akerlind, and sound design by Peter Hylenski.
Merrily We Roll Along Tickets are available now for performances from January 12 to April 7, 2019.
