A Haunting Spin on the Carousel: Cast Album Review

Carousel has always been one of my favorite musicals, unyielding and passionate in its telling of two imperfect people entwined in an ill-fated relationship. Yes, it isn’t the easiest pill to swallow, but it was daring musical for its time and continues to be in a world where domestic abuse and misguided codependency still flourish. Part of the reason why this musical continues to resonate is the glorious Rodgers and Hammerstein score. 

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel to Spin Again

The 2017-2018 Broadway Season will include a revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical Carousel. The New York Times has reported that Director Jack O’Brien (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) will helm the production produced by Scott Rudin and Roy Furman. Leading the cast will be Jessie Mueller as Julie Jordan, Joshua Henry as Billy Bigelow, and Renée Fleming as Nettie Fowler. Justin Peck will provide the choreography.
