Rehearsals have begun for the West End transfer of the Menier Chocolate Factory production of Merrily We Roll Along and we hear a certain Mr Sondheim may have even popped in to surprise the cast yesterday.
Directed by triple Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman, previews begin at the Harold Pinter Theatre on 23 April. Opening night is 1 May. Mark Umbers, Jenna Russell and Damian Humbley all reprise their roles as Franklin Shepard, Mary Flynn and Charley Kringas respectively.
Audiences will also be able to take advantage of the Menier Chocolate Factory’s pricing policy with 100 seats at £25 in the stalls and dress circle on sale for every performance until 1 June.
