Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened...

"The story of a legendary, rare theatrical failure from Stephen Sondheim and Hal Prince doubles as an inspiring tale of ambition, youth and why we make art." - Rolling Stone

“A love letter to the theater—and a deeply poignant one at that—Lonny Price’s sentimental documentary Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened… is a bittersweet gem. Ostensibly a look back at the making of Stephen Sondheim and Harold Prince’s short-lived 1981 Broadway musical Merrily We Roll Along, the film is also a meditation on youthful optimism, broken dreams, and the theater as a welcoming home for people who have a hard time fitting in anywhere else.

"In the end, Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened… is not just about a sure-fire hit that missed. Those stories are a dime a dozen. It’s really about the knocks that life hands you and how you pick yourself up and dust yourself off afterwards. And, on that score, it’s a triumph." - Entertainment Weekly
