New York's historic Ziegfeld Theater has announced that it will host an additional screening of Maria Friedman's acclaimed West End production of Stephen Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along. Tickets may now be purchased in person only at the Ziegfeld box office at 141 West 54th Street.
As previously announced, the London production partnered with CinemaLive to offer broadcasts of the recorded performance in various U.S. cinemas on October 23. The additional screening at the Ziegfeld will add 1,000 tickets to the nearly sold-out, one-night-only event.
The 2012 Critics' Circle Award-winning Best Musical, featuring a score by eight-time Tony-winning composer Stephen Sondheim and a book by Tony-winning writer George Furth, transferred to the West End following a successful run at the Menier Chocolate Factory. Mark Umbers, Jenna Russell, and Damian Humbley lead the cast as Franklin, Mary, and Charlie, respectively, three friends whose journeys through life are traced in reverse chronological order.
