About Carousel

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s "Carousel" has returned to Broadway in a sumptuous production directed by three-time Tony winner Jack O’Brien, starring Joshua Henry and Jessie Mueller, with choreography by New York City Ballet’s Justin Peck. “God is in CAROUSEL,” raves The Chicago Tribune. “It’s the greatest musical ever written.” Don’t miss the ecstatically acclaimed revival NPR calls “the best musical of the season, by far.”

Tell Me More

What’s the use of wond’rin’ if you should see the new Broadway revival of “Carousel”? Expertly staged by director Jack O’Brien and first-time Broadway choreographer Justin Peck, the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic takes audiences back to the late 1800s, when a carousel barker named Billy Bigelow meets and quickly falls in love with millworker Julie Jordan. A Golden Age classic about a quest for redemption, “Carousel” reveals that darkness lives among the light and that all human beings come with baggage.

Expect Rodgers and Hammerstein staples such as “You’re a Queer One, Julie Jordan,” “If I Loved You,” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from the timeless musical that features dancing so effortless, you’ll wish you were first in line to the Broadway fair.

What To Watch For

  • Jessie Mueller, who stars as Julie Jordan, was unsure she’d want to take this project on — given that she’d done the show twice. “At first, I didn’t know if I needed to crack this open again,” she explained. “I had such beautiful experiences the last time I explored it. I thought, Do you mess with that?”
  • Joshua Henry is the first black actor to star as Billy Bigelow on Broadway.
  • “Carousel” holds a special place in the heart of director Jack O’Brien, who made his stage debut at the University of Michigan in 1959 as Mr. Snow.
  • Among his collaborations with Oscar Hammerstein II, Richard Rodgers credited “Carousel” as his favorite.
