Following the spectacular success of the first Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, Oklahoma! (1943), the pair sought to collaborate on another piece, knowing that any resulting work would be compared with Oklahoma!, most likely unfavorably. They were initially reluctant to seek the rights to Liliom; Molnár had refused permission for the work to be adapted in the past, and the original ending was considered too depressing for the musical theatre. After acquiring the rights, the team created a work with lengthy sequences of music and made the ending more hopeful.

The musical required considerable modification during out-of-town tryouts, but once it opened on Broadway on April 19, 1945, it was an immediate hit with both critics and audiences. Carousel initially ran for 890 performances and duplicated its success in the West End in 1950. Though it has never achieved as much commercial success as Oklahoma!, the piece has been repeatedly revived, and has been recorded several times. A production by Nicholas Hytner enjoyed success in 1992 in London, in 1994 in New York and on tour. In 1999, Time magazine named Carousel the best musical of the 20th century.

You’re History

When a nerdy teenager turns a portable classroom into a time machine, a mischievous detention class is sent hurtling back through history!  The time-warped team discover vicious Vikings, pilates-practicing pirates,  disco-happy gladiators, a rapping Romeo and Juliet and the infamous Oedipus on Jerry Springer.  A rollicking musical chock-full of wonderful characters, historical mayhem and sensational songs. A hip, intelligent production that will rock the house!

The Arcadians Children’s Theatre will present You’re History Sept 21 – 23 buy tickets here
