Synopsis

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Goldman.


Please note there will not be an interval.


Imelda Staunton stars in a dazzling new production of Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical broadcast live from the National Theatre.

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 - classics such as Broadway Baby, I’m Still Here and Losing My Mind among them - and lie about themselves...


'Jaw-droppingly great.' Independent


'Imelda Staunton is unforgettable in Sondheim’s showbiz stunner.' Guardian


'A perfect production.' Metro


'A stunning revival. An extraordinary cast.' Time Out.
