Merrily We Roll Along to be screened in cinemas worldwide

by -

Maria Friedman’s production of Merrily We Roll Along is to be broadcast in cinemas around the UK under a partnership between Cinema Live and Digital Theatre.

The production, originally staged at the Menier Chocolate Factory and later at the Harold Pinter Theatre, is the first to be distributed under the joint organisations’ West End Theatre Series initiative, which plans to bring commercial theatre productions to cinemas in high definition.

Merrily We Roll Along will be shown in UK cinemas from October 24, with other screenings following in countries around the world, including Canada, the USA and Australia.
