From the magical evocation of the carousel in the overture to the majestic and moving strains of the immortal “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” this giant of the musical stage remains timeless and star bright. The poignant story of the faithful Julie and her brutish husband Billy is one of the most powerful books of the musical theatre and perfectly matches its extraordinary score. The story revolves around Billy Bigelow, a carousel barker whose romance with millworker Julie Jordan comes at a high price. He participates in a robbery to provide for Julie and their unborn child. After it goes tragically wrong, he is given a chance to make things right. 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 of his musicals.
Music by Richard Rodgers, book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, based on “Liliom” by Ferenc Molnar, adapted by Benjamin F. Glazer.
ETC’s production is directed by Trish Lindberg with musical direction by Harmony Markey and choreography by Gustavo Wons. The set is designed by Szu-Feng Chen, projections are by Alex Koch and lighting design is by Peter Liebolt.
