The show tells the story of how three friends' lives and friendship change over the course of 20 years; it focuses particularly on Franklin Shepard, a talented composer of musicals who, over those 20 years, abandons his friends and songwriting career to become a producer of Hollywood movies. Like the play on which it is based, the show's story moves backward in time, beginning in 1976 at the friends' lowest moment and ending in 1957, at their youthful best. The show will have its first Broadway revival in fall 2023, starring Jonathan Groff ("King George- Hamilton), Daniel Radcliff ("Harry Potter") and Lindsay Mendez ("Carrie- Carousel").
