Details of Carousel and the Ticket Luck value
Carousel achieved phenomenal success when it was first played in 1945 at Majestic Theatre. The rave reviews it earned after its very first production set the path for future success. Carousel is produced by Broadway's Golden Team, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, who was responsible for the highly successful musical Oklahoma! Rodgers worked on the musical scores while Hammerstein is credited with the lyrics. The duo ended up creating a wonderfully compelling and beautiful musical that has stunned audiences for decades.
Carousel is based on the story “Liliom” by Hungarian writer Ferenc Molnar. A beautiful drama, the book tells the story of the gruff carousel barker, Billy Bigelow and his romance with mill-hand, Julie Jordan. What starts off as an epic love story soon turns into a tale of woe and tragedy as the pair marries and struggles through the relationship. Billy's brash and rebellious ways end in a tragedy but he is given a chance to redeem himself in the afterlife. The question then becomes: will Billy be able to save his family in time and atone for his mistakes.
The splendid choreography, amazing acting and beautiful melodies all contribute to the remarkably compelling story. The show has had audiences on its feet on its previous revivals and tours. It has achieved immense critical acclaim and rave reviews and recommendations on various media sources.
The New York Daily Mirror has declared Carousel 'bountiful' and 'beguiling'. Time Magazine voted it “Best Musical of The Century”, while New York Times has proclaimed it 'delightful' and 'a masterpiece'. Carousel has been revived countless times over the years by various opera and theater companies and has been played at sold out venues several times. The appeal of the musical is such that it was adapted into a motion-picture film in 1956 by Twentieth Century Fox.
Carousel has won a number of Olivier and Tony Awards including awards for music and choreography. The musical adaptation of the play also features a visually appealing set design and uplifting musical scores.
