The time is 1971, and theatrical impresario Dimitri Weissmann is hosting a reunion of ex-Follies performers in his crumbling theatre, setting the stage for a parade of brilliant musical 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, coming face-to-face with the future.
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, by musical theatre legend Stephen Sondheim and author James Goldman, uses musical theatre as a metaphor for the collapse of American innocence and naiveté in the post-Kennedy years.
This show will be performed by high school actors (grades 9-12).
