MERRILY documentary closes on Netflix March 17th

In case you haven’t seen it yet, or didn’t know, Lonny Price’s 2016 documentary about Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s “backwards musical” MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG takes its last bow on Netflix on March 17th.

In BEST WORST THING THAT EVER COULD HAVE HAPPENED the cast and crew of the 1981 Broadway musical “Merrily We Roll Along” recall joy and heartbreak during the production of a surefire hit that wasn’t. Its well worth a watch and features the major players including Stephen Sondheim, Hal Prince, Jason Alexander, Mandy Patinkin and more as they recall the development, opening and very quick closing of a show which was perhaps like much of Sondheim’s work, ahead of its time.

Worth catching if you have Netflix (countries vary in availability – they tell me).
