This production manages to circumvent what many have long believed to be so problematic about this musical and put on stage what director Martin Friedman and other true Sondheimaphiles have recognized and admired since 1981.
It may have been a flop on Broadway, but ““Merrily We Roll Along” is a hit at Lakeland Civic Theatre. It’s definitely a must see!!!
Thanks to the talented company of actors, crisp musical direction by Jordan Cooper, a fulsome-sounding 11-piece orchestra, and Friedman’s thorough understanding of Sondheim’s theatrical impulses, it all works.
