Lindsay Mendez is rolling along…
The 39-year-old half-Mexican American actress, singer and Broadway star has been cast in the highly anticipated off-Broadway revival of Merrily We Roll Along.
The run is scheduled through January 8.
With a score by Stephen Sondheim and book by George Furth, Merrily We Roll Along is based on a play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, and features classic songs like “Old Friends,” “Not a Day Goes By,” and “Our Time.”
It tells the story of a trio of creative friends making their way in New York, and is famously told in reverse chronology.
Mendez won the “triple crown” (Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Awards) for her performance in the 2018 Broadway revival of Carousel.
Mendez and Groff join the previously announced Daniel Radcliffe, who stars as Charley.
Presented in a special arrangement with Sonia Friedman Productions, the Menier Chocolate Factory (Artistic Director David Babani), and Patrick Catullo, Merrily We Roll Along will be directed by Maria Friedman and choreographed by Tim Jackson.
The creative team for Merrily We Roll Along will include Catherine Jayes as music supervisor and Alvin Hough, Jr. as music director, with scenic & costume design by Soutra Gilmour, lighting design by Amith Chandrashaker, and sound design by Kai Harada.
Dave Anzuelo will serve as fight & intimacy director, with Jhanaë K-C Bonnick as stage manager.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, September 21, at noon ET.
