The Chocolate Factory's critically acclaimed production of Sondheim's classic musical transfers to the West End for a 12 week run. Read More >

Due to unprecedented demand and huge critical acclaim, following a sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Merrily We Roll Along opens in the West End for a strictly limited 12 week season.

Based on the play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s musical charts the turbulent relationship of three friends, Franklin, Charley and Mary, over three decades in the entertainment business. Starting in 1980 and travelling backwards in time, this powerful and moving story features some of Sondheim’s most beautiful songs including Good Thing Going, Not a Day Goes By and Old Friends.
