New York, 1971. There’s a party on the stage of the Weismann Theatre. 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 magnificent Follies in this dazzling new production. Full of singing, dancing, and drama, it’s directed by Dominic Cooke (“The Comedy of Errors”).
Stephen Sondheim is known for his previous works including “A Little Night Music,” “Sweeney Todd” and “Sunday in the Park with George,” for which he has won Academy, Tony, Grammy and Olivier Awards.
This 5-Star production has been called “Jaw-droppingly great” (Independent), “Unmissable” (Telegraph), “Not just triumphant, but transcendent” (The Stage), and “a showbiz stunner” (Guardian). Come see what the critics and audiences are gushing about in London!
