Inspired by the words of Will Rogers and Betty Rogers

The Will Rogers Follies focuses on the life and career of

famed humorist and performer Will Rogers (“Oklahoma’s

favorite son”). Using the Ziegfeld Follies as a backdrop,

Follies describes the episodes of Rogers’ life in spectacular

production numbers and conveys the personality of

this quintessentially American figure using snippets of

his famous homespun style of wisdom and common

sense. Follies was the winner of the Tony and Drama

Desk Award for Best Musical.

BWW Reviews: Never Met a Rivertown Show I Didn't Like – THE WILL ROGERS FOLLIESBWW Reviews: Never Met a Rivertown Show I Didn't Like – THE WILL ROGERS FOLLIES
by Heidi Scheuermann - Feb 11, 2015

Will Rogers, 'Oklahoma's Favorite Son,' was one of those do-it-all celebrities. Cowboy; trick roper; vaudeville performer; comedian; newspaper columnist; film actor; politician; husband to Betty Blake; and father to Bill, Mary, James, and Fred. The man did it all. Because Will's vaudeville trick rope act led him to headline the Ziegfeld Follies, The Will Rogers Follies tells his life story as if it were being told through one of Mr. Ziegfeld's productions. It's quite clever. It's also the rootinest, tootinest, knee-slapping, wholesome humored, and down right All-American show I've ever seen. And I loved it. (more...)
