Merrily We Roll Along with Jessica Kate Ryan

 This week Julie Miranda, and Zane chat with Jessica Kate Ryan about which of life's truths can be gleaned from Sondheim's infamous flop, Merrily We Roll Along!

"...to be a Stephen Sondheim fan is to have one's heart broken at regular intervals. Usually, the heartbreak comes from Mr. Sondheim's songs -for his music can tear through us with an emotional force as moving as Gershwin's. And sometimes the pain is compounded by another factor - for some of Mr. Sondheim's most powerful work turns up in shows (''Anyone Can Whistle,'' ''Pacific Overtures'') that fail. Suffice it to say that both kinds of pain are abundant in ''Merrily We Roll Along,'' the new Sondheim-Harold Prince-George Furth musical that opened at the Alvin last night. Mr. Sondheim has given this evening a half-dozen songs that are crushing and beautiful - that soar, and linger, and hurt. But the show that contains them is a shambles."  - By FRANK RICH, New York Times
