Show Summary - Carousel

Carousel is back on Broadway! The second musical ever written by the powerhouse songwriting team Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, Carousel first debuted on Broadway in 1945, when it won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical, as that was before the Tony Awards were established in 1947.

The show was revived for a brief run in 1949, a summer run in 1954, another brief run in 1957, and a proper run in 1994 to 1995, the last of which won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. Finally, this beloved show has found its way back to Broadway. The 2018 revival is directed by Tony Award winner Jack O’Brien, who has also helmed Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Front Page, It’s Only a Play, Macbeth, The Nance, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and many more.

This production stars Jessie Mueller (Beautiful, Waitress) as Julie Jordan, a mill worker who strikes up a romance with a carousel barker named Billy Bigelow, who in this production is played by Joshua Henry (Shuffle Along, Hamilton). The production also stars Grammy Award winning opera singer Renée Fleming (Living on Love) as Nettie Fowler, Julie’s cousin who houses them during tough times.
