At a reunion hosted at their former theatre, a parade of ex-showgirls with fractured pasts take the stage one last time. The time is 1971, and theatrical impresario Dimitri Weissmann hosts a reunion of ex-Follies performers in his crumbling theatre, setting the stage for a parade of brilliant pastiche numbers, including "Losing My Mind," "I'm Still Here," and "Broadway Baby." Amid the reminiscing, two middle-aged couples confront some unpleasant truths about their past and present, and come face to face with the future.
A true theatrical event, this legendary masterpiece is considered by many to be the greatest musical ever created. Follies is surreal, sophisticated, compelling, entertaining and epic in scope.
Produced through special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
