Extended twice during the limited engagement, Merrily, directed by Maria Friedman, must close as previously announced on Sunday, July 7, producers said. The revival will have played 20 previews and 312 regular performances.

In addition to the headlining trio, Merrily, with music and lyrics by Sondheim and book by Furth, features Krystal Joy Brown, Katie Rose Clarke and Reg Rogers among the principal cast.

The production was originally produced at the Menier Chocolate Factory in 2012 followed by a West End run produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, the Menier Chocolate Factory, and Neal Street Productions in 2013. It was later produced at New York Theatre Workshop in 2022.

During its run, the production has regularly placed in the upper reaches of the Broadway grosses charts, along with commensurate ticket prices. For the week ending March 17, Merrily grossed $1,623,816 with an average ticket price of $210.12. Premium tickets were a whopping $649.
