Rodgers & Hammerstein’s CAROUSEL is one of the most beautiful and compelling musicals of the 20th century. Set in a coastal village in Maine, Billy Bigelow, a swaggering, carefree carnival barker, falls in love with and marries the sweet but naive millworker Julie Jordan. After the marriage costs them both their jobs, and dwarfed by the immensity of their situation, Billy’s tragic effort to provide for his wife leads each of them on a different and difficult path toward forgiveness. Featuring a score that includes “If I Love You” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, CAROUSEL is the classic American musical, spanning heaven and earth in its exploration of human frailty, resilience, and the power of forgiveness.
CAROUSEL is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
