"A landmark musical. . . . A work of art."—The New York Times

On the eve of a once-glorious theater's destruction, all of life's might-have-beens take center stage as two jaded couples glamorize the old days in what proves to be a shattering experience. This classic musical by visionaries Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman returned to Broadway in fall 2011 starring Bernadette Peters, Jan Maxwell, and Elaine Paige.

Stephen Sondheim is the lyricist for West Side Story and Gypsy and the composer/lyricist for Sunday in the Park with George, Company, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, and many others.

James Goldman was a playwright, novelist, lyricist, and screenwriter. His plays include The Lion in Winter; They Might Be Giants; Blood, Sweat and Stanley Poole; and the musical A Family Affair.

Book Description Theatre Communications Group Inc.,U.S., United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Second Edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. "Brilliant." -Newsweek "Intoxicating! Sondheim's achingly introspective score ranks among the most sublime he's ever written." -Washington Post "Goldman's many-layered book merges past and present with resonating counterpoint, linking bittersweet memories of the past with an homage to survivors of a glorious age." -Variety "Oh bliss! You realize anew just why Follies is one of the greatest musicals ever written." -New York Times "Uniquely powerful and evanescent." -Los Angeles Times When former members of the Weismann Follies reunite on the eve of their theatre's demolition, two couples remember their glorious past and face the harsher realities of the present. In the crumbling glamour of the theatre, the shadows of their younger selves remind them of the complicated steps they've danced--both on the stage and throughout their lives. Winner of seven Tony Awards, Follies echoes the songs, exuberance and romance of the lively vaudevillian days between the two World Wars. With such well-known songs as "Broadway Baby," "I'm Still Here," "Too Many Mornings," "Could I Leave You?" and "Losing My Mind," Follies gives words to the ghosts that haunt the stages of Broadway's great old theatres.
