Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.
Starring Tracie Bennett, Janie Dee and Imelda Staunton.

Stephen Sondheim's legendary 1987 musical enjoyed a sold-out run at the National Theatre in 2017. Now, catch this glorious revival in all its colours and emotions as it screens at Esplanade this September.

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 and lie about themselves.

Tracie Bennett, Janie Dee and Imelda Staunton play the magnificent Follies in this dazzling new production, directed by Dominic Cooke (The Comedy of Errors).

Winner of Academy, Tony, Grammy and Olivier awards, Sondheim's previous work includes A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd and Sunday in the Park with George.
