Now faced with a loveless marriage and a life devoid of dreams, Louisa has begun to wonder Ė has something inside her been maimed? In Stephen Jeffreysí whirlwind adaptation of Dickensí saga Ė crowded with eccentric circus performers, shrewd businessmen, cunning widows, and downtrodden workers Ė we find that even in the darkest industrial landscape, honesty, loyalty, joy, and love aboundÖand the human heart will not be silenced forever.

BWW Review: Stunning FOLLIES at The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis
by Chris Gibson - Sep 20, 2016

While I was watching FOLLIES, I was reminded of our own beloved Fox Theatre, and how it had tread a similar path during the 1970's. Like the fictional Weismann Theatre where this story's action takes place, it had been fallen on Hard Times, reduced to screening Kung-Fu and exploitation film fare before being renovated and reopened. But there is no restoration in the cards for the Weismann, and the people that come to it for one final celebrated glimpse may be nearing the point of being past reclamation themselves. This is superior Sondheim, and though it's not revived as often as some of his other works, it's full of the kind of interweaving melodies and motifs that this master composer is so adept at creating. Find out for yourself just how compelling and engaging this musical is by seeing The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis' stunning production that opens their 50th season. (more...)
