Follies

Book by James Goldman |
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim |
Directed by Rob Ruggiero

Stephen Sondheim’s remarkable musical salutes the world of show business with lavish panache. The former stars of the Weismann Follies have gathered one last time to relive their faded glories. Past and present collide as their memories spring to life. Filled with an exuberant score and poignant observations of love and memory, it’s an unforgettable musical experience.

Steve's Take:

It’s long been a dream of mine to see this masterpiece on The Rep stage. This kickoff to our Golden Anniversary season will be a seismic spectacle.
