1535 Broadway, New York, NY 10036
WHITE-HOT. VIBRANT AND MOVING
Ben Brantley, The New York Times
All of life's might-have-beens take center stage as two couples rehash past times and favorite songs amid the crumbling magnificence of their old theater.
When former members of the "Weismann's Follies" reunite on the eve of their theater's demolition, two couples remember their glorious past and face the harsher realities of the present. In the crumbling glamour of the theater, the shadows of their younger selves remind them of the complicated steps they've danced - both on the stage and throughout their lives.
Winner of seven Tony Awards, Follies echoes the songs, exuberance, and romance of the lively vaudevillian days between the two World Wars. With such well-known songs like "Broadway Baby", "I'm Still Here", "Too Many Mornings", "Could I Leave You?" and "Losing My Mind", Follies gives words to the ghosts that haunt the stages of Broadway's great old theaters. The Washington Post calls them some of Sondheim's "wittiest, most luminous songs".
