Rodgers & Hammerstein's Carousel by : Oscar Hammerstein II : Richard Rodgers
In a Maine coastal village toward the end of the 19th century; swaggering; carefree carnival barker Billy Bigelow captivates and marries naive millworker Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant; and – desperately intent upon providing a decent life for his family – he is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison; he takes his own life and is sent “up there.” Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day 15 years later; and he encounters the daughter he never knew. She is a lonely; friendless teenager; her father's reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills a sense of hope and dignity in both the child and her mother is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. It's easy to understand why; of all the shows they created; Carousel was Rodgers and Hammerstein's personal favorite.
