Show|Ready rehearsal software and Stage|Tracks performance tracks are now available for Carousel! It’s the end of the 19th century. Billy Bigelow lives in a coastal Maine village. A carefree carnival barker, he marries the gentle millworker, Julie Jordan. Life takes a tragic turn when he loses his job just after he learns that Julie is pregnant. Desperate to provide for his family, he agrees to participate in a robbery but is caught in the act and takes his own life. Unable to get into heaven, Billy returns to earth 15 years later to make things right and change the life of his lonely wife and outcast daughter.
The musical opened on Broadway in 1945 and 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 its predecessor Oklahoma!, the show has been repeatedly revived, recorded several times, and received a film adaptation in 1956. Another Broadway revival opened in 2018. In 1999, Time magazine named Carousel the best musical of the 20th century.
