Follies Tickets

One of Stephen Sondheim's most innovative achievements, Follies is a unique show about nostalgia and the regrets of the past. Featuring a dual score, half in the style of old, showy stage numbers by the "Weismann Follies" girls, half by the main characters in the present, dealing with the decisions they've made and their failing relationships, this show is an introspective roller coaster ride of emotion.

Follies Information

About the Show:

Follies is considered one of the boldest and most uniquely crafted musicals of all time. Its Broadway premiere in 1971 received eleven Tony Award nominations and won seven, including Best Score. It has always received strong reactions from critics, sometimes very positive, sometimes quite negative, but few people can doubt the musical genius of Stephen Sondheim, the show's composer and lyricist. The show actually has two scores: the Follies pastiche numbers, performed as elaborate flashbacks to the days of the "Weismann Follies," and the book numbers, which reflect the main characters' developing story in the present. The score has produced several now-standard songs, including "Broadway Baby," "Could I Leave You?," "I'm Still Here," "Too Many Mornings," and "Losing My Mind." The rapturous emotions, crushing regrets, and the dichotomies of the characters' past and present selves make Follies a truly enthralling show. Get your very own Follies tickets today to experience the cathartic rush for yourself.


Review
"From the moment I walked into the theatre, I was embraced with the melancholy mood of the show. The stage and curtains were dilapidated and I could hear the faint sounds of an abandoned theatre: the movements of rodents scurrying unseen, the creaks of decaying floorboards and rafters, and the eerie echo of the music from the theatre's heyday..."

Plot Synopsis:

At the dilapidated Weismann Theatre, which is set to be demolished, a reunion is taking place in honor of the girls who once performed on its stage in "Weismann's Follies." The main characters are two couples. Sally Durant Plummer is an ever-girlish ex-Weismann girl who is married to Buddy Plummer, a genial salesman. Phyllis Rogers Stone is a classy, stylish ex-Weismann girl who is married to Benjamin Stone, a handsome, successful Wall Street man. The foursome meets while other guests are making their way in, including Mr. Weismann himself. Some of the former performers include: Stella and Max Deems, who used to work on the radio but now own a store in Miami; Solange La Fitte, a sensual woman with a men's fragrance named after her; Hattie Walker, who has lost several husbands; Roscoe, the aging tenor who used to introduce the ladies; and Carlotta Campion, a plucky film star who still takes life by the horns. In the midst of their nostalgic discussions, each of the attendees flashes back to memorable performances of the past and several recreate their favorites.

As the reunion guests look back on their glory days, the stories of Sally, Buddy, Phyllis, and Ben are unfurled. Sally and Phyllis were roommates when they were in the Weismann Follies while Ben and Buddy were best friends going to school in New York. Sally and Ben had once been romantically involved and Sally still carries a flame for him, despite the fact that he chose to marry the more sophisticated Phyllis. Buddy is unsatisfied with his marriage and has cheated on Sally. Phyllis' and Ben's marriage has become stale and routine, and neither seems to want to carry on the charade anymore. Will the memories of younger days inspire these characters to make changes and move on in their lives, or has time made slaves of them all? Get your Follies tickets today to find out.
