Carousel New York Tickets
Carousel New York TicketsThe 1945 musical Carousel, which tells the story of the fraught relationship between carousel barker Billy Bigelow and millworker Julie Jordan, was the second major collaboration between Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. Following the enormous success of Oklahoma!, the duo felt compelled to create a worthy follow-up. Though it failed to match the same run as its predecessor, Carousel was a critical success. Rodgers himself cited it as the best musical he ever made. Carousel is frequently revived on Broadway, offering New York audiences an opportunity to experience the classic musical live onstage.
Life and Death and Everything in BetweenThe story of Carousel is is based on the 1909 play Liliom by Hungarian playwright Ferenc Molnar. The New York-based Theatre Guild first proposed the idea of an adaptation in 1943. Rodgers and Hammerstein initially demurred from being associated with the production, as they felt there were already too many adaptations of Liliom, but they were eventually enticed by the dramatic potential of the story. Following rehearsals, Carousel opened at the Majestic Theatre on April 19, 1945, and ran for 890 performances. The enduring popularity of the musical eventually inspired a 1956 film starring Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones. However, Carousel didn’t receive a full revival until a West End production by the Royal National Theatre in London brought Carousel renewed interest in the 1990s. A few years later, the West End production moved to the Vivian Beaumont Theatre on Broadway. This production was the winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Choreography, Best Direction, Best Scenic Design and Best Featured Actress. A 2018 revival, which premiered at the Imperial Theatre, accumulated an astonishing 11 Tony Award nominations. Its two wins came for Best Choreography and Best Featured Actress in a Musical.

What can I expect from a performance of Carousel?In some ways, Carousel is a quintessential Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, combining fun, catchy tunes with emotional, soaring music but with more of an operatic sensibility. The redemptive arc of the flawed, sometimes violent character Billy Bigelow forms the emotional heart of the story. Carousel perhaps represents an evolution in musical theater. It was one of the first musical comedies in which a character experienced a complex emotional arc. Legendary lyricist and composer Stephen Sondheim once said that Oklahoma! was about a picnic, while Carousel was about life and death.
