Follies

May 3 - 26, 2018

An intimate revival for Sondheim's beloved musical

Why See Follies?

Small Scale Sondheim

Astoria Performing Arts Center bring Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman's classic back to the New York stage, seven years after it was last performed on Broadway. This Follies is an altogether more intimate affair, staged as it is in the company's cosy Good Shepard United Methodist Church, which should lend the show a wholly different feel. Artistic director Dev Bondarin is at the helm.

What is Follies About?

The story of faded musical revue stars gathering for one last hurrah, this witty commentary on the theatrical form features some of Sondheim's best known numbers including 'Losing My Mind,' 'I'm Still Here,' and 'Broadway Baby.' Set in 1971, our cast of characters include former impressario Dimitri Weissmann and his cast of former 'follies' girls. As they reminisce about their many memorable nights at a theatre which is about to be torn down, they also delve into the personal histories, exposing some very uneasy truths.
