At a reunion hosted by their former theatre, a parade of ex-showgirls with fractured pasts take the stage one last time.
A true theatrical event, this legendary masterpiece is considered by many to be the greatest musical ever created. In Follies the time is 1971, and theatrical impresario Dimitri Weissmann hosts a reunion of ex-Follies performers in his crumbling theatre, setting the stage for a parade of brilliant pastiche numbers, including “Losing My Mind,” “I’m Still Here,” and “Broadway Baby.” Amid the reminiscing, two middle-aged couples confront some unpleasant truths about their past and present, and come face to face with the future.
