Riding The Carousel

Q: One of my favorite Broadway musi-
cals is Rodgers and Hammerstein's
Carousel I understand the show has
many Jewish roots. Can you explain?
A: Carousel is based on the tragic-
comic play Liliom by the Hungarian-
Jewish playwright and novelist Ferenc
Molnar (1878-1952).
The story tells of the handsome and
charming but loutish Liliom, who runs
a carousel in a seedy carnival on the out-
skirts of town. A favorite of the women,

Are You
Puzzled?

that still is well regarded. It was Lang's
only film in French, and his first work
after exile from his native Germany.
The American-Jewish composer
George Gershwin approached Molnar
with a proposal to turn Liliom into an
opera, but he was refused.
Molnar later relented to the almost
constant appeals to set the play to music
and gave his approval to Richard Rodgers
and Oscar Hammerstein II, both Jews.
Carousel their version of the Molnar
story, opened in 1945. It was an immedi-
ate success and has become a classic of
the American musical theater. ❑

Liliom wants love but will not admit it;
he wants success, but cannot take
responsibility.
The naive Julie is attracted to him,
but Liliom makes her miserable, and he
ends up taking his own life. A heavenly
court gives him a second chance to
make things right,
ht but he botches that
task, as well.
In 1909, the play premiered in
Budapest. In 1921, Liliom was staged in
New York to great success. The Vienna-
born Jewish actor Joseph Schildkraut
starred in the title role.
In 1934, the Jewish film director Fritz
Lang made a French version of Liliom
