About the musical

New York, 1971. There’s a party on the stage of the Weismann Theater. Tomorrow the iconic building will be demolished. Thirty years after their final performance, the Follies girls gather to have a few drinks, sing a few songs and lie about themselves.

Tracie Bennett, Janie Dee and Imelda Staunton play the Follies. Featuring a cast of 37 and an orchestra of 21, it’s directed by Dominic Cooke (“The Comedy of Errors”). Winner of Academy, Tony, Grammy and Olivier awards, Sondheim’s previous work includes “A Little Night Music,” “Sweeney Todd” and “Sunday in the Park with George.”
