Inspired by the words of Will Rogers and Betty Rogers

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.
