Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Book by James Goldman

Directed by Bill English

Music direction by Dave Dobrusky

It’s 1971, and theatrical impresario Dimitri Weissmann is hosting a reunion of ex-Follies performers in his crumbling theatre. The artists gather for one last time, reminiscing about the past and contemplating their future, before the theater dims its lights for good. A true theatrical event, this legendary masterpiece is considered by many to be the greatest musical ever created. Surreal, sophisticated, compelling, heart wrenching and epic in scope, Follies uses the musical theatre as a metaphor for the collapse of American innocence and naivete in the post-Kennedy years.
