'Follies' by James Goldman and Stephen Sondheim

FOLLIES
Book by James Goldman
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Bill English
Music Direction by Dave Dobrusky
Choreography by Nicole Helfer

"ONE OF THE GREATEST MUSICALS EVER WRITTEN." - THE NEW YORK TIMES

PLAY DETAILS
It's 1971, and theatrical impresario Dimitri Weissmann is hosting a reunion of ex-Follies performers in his crumbling theatre, about to be demolished to make room for a parking lot. The artists gather for one last time, reminiscing about the past and contemplating their future, before the theater dims its lights for good. This legendary masterpiece creates a half dozen great roles for middle-aged women, whose fabulous talents have outlasted the industry's interest in them. Surreal, sophisticated, compelling, heart wrenching and epic in scope, 'Follies' uses the musical theatre as a metaphor for the collapse of American innocence and naiveté.

In-person performances at 450 Post St in San Francisco
Tickets: $30 - $100
June 30 - September 10, 2022
