1976: Franklin Shepard is a rich, famous, influential songwriter and film producer and the world is his oyster…or is it? Is he merely a once-talented Broadway composer who abandoned friends and morals in pursuit of the specious spark of fame? Filled with instantly-recognizable Sondheim classics, including “Not a Day Goes By” and “Old Friends,” Merrily We Roll Along is a thoughtful, thought-provoking look at fame and the price we pay to achieve it.
