Carousel Broadway 2018 – all information & schedule.
Carousel is a timeless musical classic that always takes the stage with a bang. Written by the world-famous Rogers and Hammerstein in 1945, the musical is an adaptation of Ferenc Molnár’s 1909 play Liliom. This new Broadway run of the play stars Tony award nominees and winners, and Renée Fleming in her first ever Broadway musical role. The show is a surefire hit, as it’s a classic musical that audiences love. After all, the first Broadway run of Carousel in 1945 played almost 900 shows and then toured for a further two years after it closed in New York. This run of Carousel includes direction from Jack O’Brien and the original music and lyrics from Roger and Hammerstein themselves.
While Liliom was set in Budapest, Hungary, Carousel takes place along the coastline of Maine in the U.S. The backdrop of this quaint factory New England town is the setting for the fraught romance that begins to unfolds in the play. This is the story of Julie Jordan, an attractive young mill worker, and charming carousel barker Billy Bigelow. Julie gives up everything to be with Billy, but all does not run smoothly for the star-crossed lovers. Their struggles are separate yet intertwined, and the lengths they go to in order to survive are great, making the play an incredibly gripping production. With the help of fantastic musical interludes such as “You’re a Queer One, Julie Jordan”, “If I Loved You”, and “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, the show has become a real American classic.
For lovers of Broadway, musical theatre, and love stories, there’s no better play than Carousel. Don’t hesitate to get your hands on tickets to this exciting show – it’s sure to be a hit.
