Merrily We Roll Along is a musical with a book by George Furth and lyrics and music by Stephen Sondheim. It is based on the 1934 play of the same name by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. Furth and Sondheim retained the basic structure and overall theme of the play but updated it to encompass the period from 1957 to 1976

Album Merrily We Roll Along (The New Cast Recording). Merrily We Roll Along Lyrics. COMPANY (EXCEPT FRANK) Yesterday is done See the pretty countryside Merrily we roll along, roll along Bursting with dreams. Travelling’s the fun Flashing by the countryside Everybody merrily, merrily Catching at dreams. Rolling alon. olling alon. ROUP I Dreams don’t die, so keep an eye on your dream. Dreams that will explode Waking up the countryside Making you feel merrily Merrily, what can go wrong Rolling along? Some roads are soft And some are bumpy Some roads you really fly Some rides are rough And leave you jumpy Why make it tough By getting grumpy? Plenty of roads to try.

Merrily We Roll Along didn't fail in 1981 because of the score, yet Sondheim and Furth labored to fix what wasn't broken, largely by making the main character more likable, a change that undercuts the main theme of the piece. The score remains one of Sondheim's best, boasting the heartbreaking ballads "Not a Day Goes By" and "Good Thing Going" as well as the brilliantly witty patter songs "Franklin Shepard, In. and "Bobby and Jackie and Jack. But the original Broadway cast album still presents the best version of the material

Over a 10-year period in the 1970s, Stephen Sondheim and producer-director Hal Prince had five critical successes on Broadway. And their one failure makes for a really good documentary. Lonny Price’s Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened recounts the story of Merrily We Roll Along, the 1981 musical by Sondheim, Prince and George Furth. It is a fairy tale in reverse, and it’s worth seeing not only for any theater fan but for anyone who might have experienced a major disappointment.
