June 30 – July 15, 2017 – Playhouse 2000 presents Carousel, A Musical by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II June 30 through July 15 – Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, July 9 at 2:30 p.m.
A Musical of amazing depth and beauty, with a story that resonates through the years.
Another gem from Broadway’s “Golden Era” drawn from much earlier material, Carousel is Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein’s version of a now-forgotten European play, Lilliom. Thanks to an extraordinary movie, we are all familiar with this story of the complex love story between young Julie Jordan and the carnival barker Billy Bigelow to whom she is drawn despite his flaws.
This is one of the most beautiful scores ever created by the most important writing team in Broadway history, including the well-loved “If I Loved You,” “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over” and the thrilling “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” which will send you from the theater with an uplift that will last for days.
Don’t miss it!
