1st Night Photos: Friedman makes Merrily at Menier
Date: 29 November 2012
Producer Sonia Friedman was among the guests at the Menier Chocolate Factory last night to see her sister Maria's directing debut - a revival of Stephen Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along.
Based on the play by Kaufman and Hart, Sondheim and George Furth's musical charts the turbulent relationship between three friends, Franklin, Charley and Mary, over three decades. Starting in 1980 and travelling backwards in time, it features songs including "Good Thing Going", "Not a Day Goes By" and "Old Friends".
Starring Mark Umbers, Damian Humbley and Jenna Russell as the three friends, Merrily We Roll Along runs until 23 February 2013.
