FOLLIES: In Concert Friday 31 August & Saturday 1 September, 2018 at 7pm & Sunday 2 September, 2018 at 2pm Director: Vanessa Dinning Musical Director: William B.J. Robinson Everything was possible. In Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman’s legendary musical masterpiece, the iconic Weismann Theater, now a crumbling shell of its former glory, is about to be demolished to provide precious New York City parking space. Broadway impresario Dimitri Weismann arranges a reunion of the actors, singers, dancers, and personalities who peopled his famous Follies in the years between the World Wars, as a farewell tribute to the doomed building. In a shabby yet sparkling atmosphere of bittersweet nostalgia, a wide variety of faded glamour girls – the famous Follies beauties of years gone by – laugh, reminisce, brag, boast, express regret, and perform the musical numbers which made them famous, trailed by the ghosts of their younger selves. Against this volatile atmosphere of drunken remembrances, a decades-old love quadrangle receives a revival when Follies dancers Sally and Phyllis, and their respective husbands, Buddy and Ben meet again. Follies is about the past, revisited, embraced, rejected, relived, denied. It is about the effects the past has on the present and the future. A true theatrical event, considered by many to be one of the greatest musicals ever created, Follies features a host of some of Sondheim’s most brilliant and memorable songs including “Losing My Mind,” “Could I Leave You?” “I’m Still Here” and “Broadway Baby.”
