Synopsis: One of the truly legendary musicals in the history of Broadway, Stephen Sondheim’s MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG opened to enormous fanfare in 1981, and closed after sixteen performances. BEST WORST THING draws back the curtain on the extraordinary drama of that show's creation --and tells the stories of the hopeful young performers whose lives were transformed by it. Directed by Lonny Price, a member of the original cast, the film is a bittersweet meditation on the choices we all make, and the often unexpected consequences of those choices. Featuring exclusive appearances by Stephen Sondheim, Hal Prince, Jason Alexander, Mandy Patinkin, Adam Guettel, Frank Rich and the original Broadway cast of MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG. We’re happy to collaborate with Sierra Stages to present this film. Sierra Stages is a nonprofit community theatre that begins its 9th Season of quality local theatre in March with the comedy “End Days” at the Nevada Theatre.
