WATCH: A 'Merrily We Roll Along' TDF Conversation

Date: Jan 31, 2024

Reg Rogers and Katie Rose Clarke on costarring in the acclaimed Sondheim revival


Talk about a tuneful turnaround: Stephen Sondheim's biggest flop, 1981's Merrily We Roll Along, is now a palpable Broadway hit. The tale of Franklin, Charley and Mary, three showbiz pals whose turbulent friendship is explored in reverse from 1976 to 1957, this production works thanks to the chemistry of its cast—not just leads Jonathan Groff, Daniel Radcliffe and Lindsay Mendez, but all of its valuable players. As Joe and Beth, the spouses who get dumped when their respective mates hook up, Reg Rogers and Katie Rose Clarke feel camaraderie is the key to the show's success. We brought these costars together to talk about the blurry line between the cast and their characters, what it's like being Sondheim first-timers and their favorite Daniel Radcliffe stories. If you weren't able to tune in live you can watch a recording below. Captions are available.
