About Follies

The National Theatre produced a revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman's 1971 musical Follies at the Olivier Theatre in late 2017, and it will return to the theatre in February 2019. Set on the crumbling stage of a Broadway theatre the musical brings together past performers from the Weismann's Follies as they reunite for one final time before the venue's destruction. The show primarily focuses on two couples, Buddy and Sally Durant Plummer and Benjamin and Phyllis Rogers Stone and their own memories, challenges and roads they didn't take.

Janie Dee and Peter Forbes will return to the production in 2019.
