The Hudson Theatre opened on October 19, 1903, under the management of producer Henry B. Harris. One of its most notable productions was Lillian Hellman’s Toys in the Attic. Currently, the Hudson Theatre stands as a New York City landmark housed within the Millennium Broadway Hotel. It re-opened as a Broadway space in February 2017 under the ownership of The Ambassador Theatre Group.
Spanning three decades in the entertainment business, Merrily We Roll Along charts the turbulent relationship between composer Franklin Shepard and his two lifelong friends — writer Mary and lyricist & playwright Charley. An inventive cult-classic ahead of its time, Merrily We Roll Along features some of Stephen Sondheim’s most celebrated and personal songs. Maria Friedman first directed the musical at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory – a production that subsequently transferred to the Harold Pinter Theatre, where it garnered the most five-star reviews in West End history before going on to win the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival.
