Turns out we're getting a Sondheim musical on Broadway in fall 2023 after all! The current Off-Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's Merrily We Roll Along, currently playing a sold-out run at New York Theatre Workshop through January 22 (read reviews here), will make the jump to Broadway in fall 2023, with dates and a theatre to be announced. The production will be the musical's first on Broadway since its brief 1981 original run.

The production's stars are staying with the production. Daniel Radcliffe will star as Charley Kringas, with Jonathan Groff as Franklin Shepard, Lindsay Mendez as Mary Flynn, Krystal Joy Brown as Gussie Carnegie, Katie Rose Clarke as Beth Shepard, and Reg Rogers as Joe Josephson. Additional casting is to be announced.

Maria Friedman will again direct, with choreography by Tim Jackson and orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick. Additional creative team members will be revealed in the coming months.

With a book by Furth, adapted from the George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart play of the same name; and a score by Sondheim, the musical tracks the lives of three friends navigating the entertainment industry over three decades—in reverse chronological order. Sondheim's score includes such songs as "Old Friends," "Now You Know," "Franklin Shepard, Inc.," "Good Thing Going," and "Not a Day Goes By."

The work was not a success on its first Broadway outing, running just 16 performances and ending the string of genre-defining collaborations between Sondheim and director Hal Prince. Together with the popularity of the show's original Broadway cast album, a revised version of the show has transformed the work into a cult favorite. This current production was originally staged at London's Menier Chocolate Factory in 2012 and later transferred to the West End, where it won an Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival. Huntington Theatre in Boston gave the staging its North American premiere in 2017.
