TWO GREAT SHOWS: “Merrily We Roll Along” at Villanova’s Vasey Hall & “Baby” at The Media Theatre

March 2020

In Merrily We Roll Along, Sondheim’s witty and wistful fable about friendship, compromise and the price of success, introduces us to three idealistic artists whose lives pull them in unexpected directions.

Featuring beloved songs like “Not a Day Goes By,” “Good Thing Going,” and “Our Time,” this groundbreaking musical starts at the end and ends at the beginning, following the aspirations, trials and tribulations of this starry-eyed trio. As the very last mainstage production in Vasey Theatre, Merrily We Roll Along invites audiences to look back on over five decades of fond memories while also dreaming ahead to the many marvels yet to come…

PERFORMANCES include a Preview Show on 3/17 at 8pm and Opening Night, 3/18, 8pm. Show runs through March 29th. Show Dates, Times & Tickets
Book by George Furth – Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim – Directed by Valerie Joyce

Media Theatre’s “Baby, The Musical” Opens March 11th and runs through March 29th

Oh, Baby! As you might imagine, this show, which examines how parents-to-be experience the emotional stresses and triumphs that proceed and extend through the arrival of a baby – IS A COMEDY! Because frankly, if you’ve had a child, you know there is nothing more exciting, frightening and utterly transformational than impending parenthood…

Baby, The Musical from the acclaimed duo, Richard Maltby, Jr., and David Shire, examines how parents-to-be experience all of the desperate lows and the belly-laugh highs that arrive along with a bouncing bundle of joy!

Three couples on a university campus deal with the painful, rewarding and agonizingly funny consequences of the universal experience of pregnancy and looming parenthood. There are the college students, barely at the beginning of their adult lives; the thirty-somethings, having trouble conceiving but determined to try; and the middle-aged parents, looking forward to seeing their last child graduate from college… when a night of unexpected passion lands them back where they started.
