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.
