Follies by Stephen Sondheim at Ye Olde Rose and Crown
All Star Productions presents Follies, Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by James Goldman, at the Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre Pub, a fringe venue in Walthamstow, east London, from 21 Oct to 12 Nov 2010.
Directed by Tim McArthur, starring Mark Hutchinson as 'Buddy'. Musical Director: Aaron Clingham
An aching and nostalgia filled look at the glories of a theatre doomed to be turned into a car park, viewed through a final reunion of the cast of the Follies. Two married couples made bitter through age find happiness by abandoning their dreams of youth in the dying theatre. Glittering showgirls mix with the eerie ghost of a forgotten era.
