The musical takes place between 1873 and 1888 in a small New England fishing village. The tale revolves around a love affair between Billy Bigelow, a travelling carnival man, and Julie Jordan, a local factory worker. Billy loses his life during an attempted robbery but is allowed to return to earth for a short time to seek out his daughter.
The 1945 musical reunited the creative team that had brought Oklahoma! to the stage two years earlier. The New York Daily Mirror wrote: "Carousel is beautiful, bountiful, beguiling...it is the product of taste, imagination and skill." In 1999, TIME Magazine voted Carousel "Best Musical of the Century!"
“Carousel” has a memorable score, featuring songs such as “If I Loved You” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone”.
