Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel returns to Broadway in a new production at the Imperial Theatre. The staging, from Tony winner Jack O’Brien, officially opens April 12.
Jessie Mueller, who earned a Tony Award for her performance as Carole King and most recently appeared on Broadway in Waitress, stars as Julie Jordan opposite Tony nominee Joshua Henry (The Scottsboro Boys, Violet, Shuffle Along, Hamilton) as Billy Bigelow.
Among those joining them are Grammy-winning opera star Renée Fleming in her Broadway musical debut as Nettie Fowler, Lindsay Mendez as Carrie Pipperidge, Alexander Gemignani as Enoch Snow, Margaret Colin as Mrs. Mullin, and Tony nominee John Douglas Thompson as the Starkeeper.
