Carousel on Broadway

Our next Theater outing will be to the Broadway revival of the Iconic musical, Carousel (which returns to Broadway after 2 decades!!!!!) on March 6th at 8:00.  The tickets are in the Orchestra section and are $140 each.   Email me to reserve your tickets!!!

This show comes to life starring Joshua Henry (Hamilton), Tony award nominee Jessie Muller (Beautiful, Waitress), and Renae Fleming in her first ever Broadway musical.  

The reviews have been fabulous…

Carousel is “nothing less than a masterpiece” (The New York Times).

“One of America’s finest theatrical achievements.” – Richard L. Coe, The Washington Post

“The most glorious of the Rodgers & Hammerstein works. Nothing less than a masterpiece.” -Brooks Atkinson, The New York Times

“I shall remember it always.” – John Chapman, Daily News

Carousel is the second musical by the team of Richard Rodgers (music) and Oscar Hammerstein II (book and lyrics). The story revolves around carousel barker Billy Bigelow, whose romance with millworker Julie Jordan comes at the price of both their jobs. He attempts a robbery to provide for Julie and their unborn child; after it goes wrong, he is given a chance to make things right. A secondary plot line deals with millworker Carrie Pipperidge and her romance with ambitious fisherman Enoch Snow. The show includes the well-known songs “If I Loved You“, “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone“. Richard Rodgers later wrote that Carousel was his favorite of all his musicals. – Wikipedia
