Carousel

“Never before has Carousel (1945) seemed so fresh, poignant and vital, but on a scale that is profoundly human”

★★★★★

Fiona Mountford Evening Standard

 

“A Carousel that really moves … Carousel becomes a rhapsody in the restlessness of being young, oversexed and confused … Ive seldom seen a more convincingly kinetic version”

Ben Brantley New York Times

Voted the best musical of the 20th century by Time Magazine, Carousel is the classic American musical, with a timeless score that included the songs If I Loved You, June is Bustin’ Out All Over, and the iconic You’ll Never Walk Alone.


This imaginative interpretation from Morphic Graffiti illuminates the immediacy of this heart lifting story; the belief in forgiveness and the power of the human spirit.


When mill worker Julie Jordan falls for the masculine charms of Billy Bigelow, a chain of events unravel that suggests that their destiny is predetermined by the hand of fate. Set in the New England coastline, against the backdrop of the Great Depression, this reimagining of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel charts a story of recklessness, regrets and redemption.
