Tracie Bennett, Janie Dee, and Imelda Staunton play the magnificent Follies in this dazzling production of Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical, directed by Dominic Cooke and filmed live on stage at the National Theatre in 2017.
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.
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.
National Theatre Live (NT Live) is a groundbreaking initiative to broadcast the best of British theater to cinemas around the world, captured live in high-definition.
