THE BEST WORST THING THAT EVER COULD HAVE HAPPENED

Theater director Lonny Price, an original cast member of Stephen Sondheim’s 1981 musical Merrily We Roll Along, directs this documentary looking back at why that particular musical, with its tale told in chronologically reverse order, became a famous flop from Broadway’s reigning musical genius – and what has happened to the show, and the players, since. Price is seen here, along with original castmates Ann Morrison and Jim Walton. This slipped past me when Netflix added it to its schedule last week – but here it is.
