Commentaires : The National Theatre will produce a revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman's 1971 musical Follies at the Olivier Theatre in late 2017. 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.
Imelda Staunton will star alongside Janie Dee and Philip Quast
Presse : "Played without a trace of camp and no interval, this is a production that perfectly captures the sustained emotional arc of Sondheim and Goldman’s musical. I came out admiring the show more than ever." - Michael Billington, The Guardian (five stars)
"I’d go straight back and see it again,” I heard a woman enthusing the moment she exited. You’d swear she’d lost her marbles... until, that is, you see for yourself. Unmissable, really." - Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph

"This story about the past, ageing and the allure of glitter does absorb us but there are also times when it (whisper it) drags. Mostly, though, it is the cat’s pyjamas, with added frou-frou." - Ann Treneman, The Times (four stars)
