The 2015-16 Janet and Mark L. Goldenson Broadway Musical Concert Series at Rubicon Theatre Company concludes with the concert reading of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s Merrily We Roll Along.  Directed by award-winner Bonnie Hellman, who helmed the first long-run hit version of the award-winning show in Los Angeles, the cast includes Broadway stars Jason Graae (Grand Night for Singing and Falsettos), Kate Reinders (Wicked and Gypsy), Ventura native Andrew Samonsky (South Pacific and The Mystery of Edwin Drood) and Beverly Ward (Epic Proportions).

Winner of the Drama Desk Award and Olivier Award for Best Musical, this moving and eloquent story about friendship moves backwards in time and offers a snapshot of the relationships between Franklin, Charley, and Mary, whose hopes and dreams change dramatically over 20 years. Songs include “Our Time,” “Not a Day Goes By” and “Good Thing Going.” This rarely performed concert version of the musical merrily rolls into Ventura for three-performances-only: Saturday, October 1 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sunday, October 2 at 2 p.m.
