One of the most popular musicals written by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Richard Rodgers has been quoted as saying that Carousel was his favorite of all his musicals. It's no surprise that the 1945 Broadway sensation was revived yet again in 2018. The latest revival has already received critical acclaim since its official Broadway launch in April of 2018. Featuring beloved songs like “You'll Never Walk Alone” and “If I Loved You”, audiences will be delighted by this fresh take on the classic Broadway hit. With more than fifty award nominations and more than thirty wins since its inception in 1945, Carousel is one of the most popular, well-known musicals of all time. Though the 2018 revival of Carousel has already earned several Tony Award Nominations, the original production of Carousel was released in 1945, two years prior to the creation of the Tony Awards.
The 2018 revival of Carousel launched with celebrated Actor and Singer Joshua Henry taking on the role of Billy Bigelow. Famous for his portrayal of Aaron Burr in Hamilton, Joshua Henry brings his unique talents to the stage, bringing the already vibrant character to new heights. Joshua Henry has been nominated for several awards throughout his career, winning an ACCA Award for Outstanding Broadway Chorus and Outstanding Ensemble Performance, both in 2007.
Another Broadway standout helped launch the successful 2018 revival of Carousel as Enoch Snow. Alexander Gemignani has lent his talents to numerous off and on Broadway shows, including the Chicago Production of Hamilton with Carousel castmate Joshua Henry. Alexander Gemignani's work on Carousel earned him a 2018 Tony Award Nomination for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical.
The 2018 revival of Carousel opened at the Imperial Theatre on West 45th Street in New York. The first Preview on February 28, 2018 was a rousing success, with Carousel officially launching on April 12, 2018. Show days and times can vary, but Carousel typically shows Tuesdays through Thursday at 7 p.m., Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Carousel Target Audience
While Carousel is suitable for all audiences, this is a drama centered around a tragic love story. Children under 10 may not be able to follow the complex storyline, though the beautiful music and intricate set designs will delight audiences of all ages. Parents should use their best judgment, noting that children under 4 are typically not allowed in the theater.
While most Broadway shows run about 2 hours with intermission, Carousel's official runtime is 2 hours and 30 minutes with one intermission. As with any live show, it could run slightly shorter or slightly longer.
