Article Pixel

Award-winning and critically-acclaimed Astoria Performing Arts Center (APAC) concludes its 17th mainstage season with a production of the legendary musical Follies by James Goldman (Book) and Stephen Sondheim (Music & Lyrics), directed by APAC artistic director, Dev Bondarin (New York Innovative Theatre Awards nominee for Best Director of APAC's Raisin) and choreographed by Sara Brians (Resident Choreographer, Matilda on Broadway). Follies runs from May 3 - 26, 2018 at the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, 30-44 Crescent St. (at 30th Road), Astoria, NY 11102.

Check out photos from the show below! Before their former theater is demolished, the former "Weismann Follies" showgirls reunite to say goodbye. Featuring some of Sondheim's most well-known songs, including "Losing My Mind," "I'm Still Here," and "Broadway Baby," Follies juxtaposes innocence with sophistication, harsh reality with surrealism, and the dreams of what will be with the regrets of what was. In one evening, memory and time intermingle as two couples confront the truth about their past and their present in order to face the future.

Follies runs through May 26, 2018 at the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, 30-44 Crescent St. (at 30th Road), Astoria, NY 11102. Performances are Thursdays and Fridays at 8pm, and Saturdays at 2pm and 8pm. Tickets are $18 for adults and $12 for students and senior citizens, in advance, and are now available online at www.apacny.org. Tickets may also be purchased in person at the box office ($20 for adults and $14 for students/seniors) 1 hour prior to each performance.
