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. Featuring a cast of 37 and an orchestra of 21, it’s directed by Dominic Cooke (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom).
Winner of Academy, Tony, Grammy and Olivier Awards, Sondheim’s previous work at the NT includes A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd and Sunday in the Park with George.
This production runs without an interval. This is true to the spirit of how Sondheim intended the piece to be performed.
Including such classic songs as Broadway Baby, I’m Still Here and Losing My Mind, Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical is staged for the first time at the National Theatre.
