A half-demolished theater... a reunion of Follies showgirls - where two couples rekindle friendship and rivalry, romance and betrayal. This stylish and innovative musical captures the razzmatazz of yesteryear and the nervous energy of today. For this bittersweet look at show business and marriage, Stephen Sondheim has composed an extraordinary score of dazzling showstoppers!
