MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG - A SONDHEIM TRIPTYCHSATURDAY NIGHT tells the unassuming story of a group of Brooklyn boys trying to make good in the stock market in 1929.

Unfortunately, one of them, Gene, is so eager to climb the social ladder and impress his sweetheart, he invests his friends' money in a swank apartment near the Brooklyn Bridge, even going so far as to sell the gang's precious automobile!


MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG - A SONDHEIM TRIPTYCHIn 1953, SATURDAY NIGHT was set to mark the Broadway debut of a young, new writer - Stephen Sondheim. Owing to the death of of the original producer the New York opening (which starred Australia's own David Campbell) was delayed some 47 years! Brimming with charm and youthful vitality, SATURDAY NIGHT is a captivating story of love, ambition and friendship set during the last days before the Great Depression.
