Heralded as one of the best plays of the 20th century, Carousel won the 1992 Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival and won five Tonys in 1994. Widely acclaimed, the play has been a tremendous hit since its premiere, and continues to be a favourite in the theater world.

Why Watch Carousel

Hammerstein and Rodgers’ 1945 play Carousel is an adaptation of Ferenc Molnár's 1909 play Liliom. Directed by three-time Tony winner Jack O’Brien, Carousel has a brilliant cast, supported by exceptional songs like 'If I Loved You,' 'June is Busting Out All Over,' 'Soliloquy,' and ‘You'll Never Walk Alone’. With a sweeping musical score and incandescent ballet sequences, this story of passion, loss and redemption is one you shouldn’t miss.

The Story

Set in the Maine coastline in late 19th century, Carousel is the story of carnival barker Billy Bigelow, and Julie Jordan, a naive mill worker, who fall in love, marry, and have a tumultuous relationship. As Billy loses his job just when he finds out Julie is pregnant, he is eager to provide for his family, and is pushed into commiting a robbery. The rest of the play is about the result of the robbery, interspersed with other characters, and Billy finally meeting his daughter.
