Since its infamous failure on Broadway in 1981, Merrily has been revived and reworked several times
Merrily tells the story of three friends – how they meet, how they find success together, and how they fall apart – but with a twist. The story unfolds backwards in time, beginning when everything has fallen apart, and ending when everything is beginning. In this, it follows the format of the play it’s based on, written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart.
