Photo Flash: Victoria Clark, et al. in Rehearsal for FOLLIES LA!

By: Apr. 24, 2012

Center Theatre Group will soon present FOLLIES starring Victoria Clark (replacing Bernadette Peters), Jan Maxwell, Danny Burnstein, and Ron Raines. The limited engagement will play May 3 through June 9, 2012. The opening is scheduled for May 9. Check out photos of the cast in action, as featured on CTG's Facebook page, below.

Tickets for "Follies" for the Ahmanson Theatre engagement will go on sale in January. Any CTG patron who is currently holding tickets for "Funny Girl" will be re-issued new tickets for "Follies." For further information, visit www.CenterTheatreGroup.org/Follies or call (213) 972-4400.

When former members of the "Weismann Follies" reunite on the eve of their theatre's demolition, two couples remember their past and face the harsher realities of the present. Reminiscing about their younger selves and the years gone by, the crumbling theatre brings back memories for both couples of good times and bad. Containing such well-known songs as "Broadway Baby," "I'm Still Here," "Too Many Mornings," "Could I Leave You?" and "Losing My Mind," "Follies" echoes the songs, exuberance and romance of the vaudeville days between the two World Wars.

Originally produced on Broadway by Harold Prince with orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick, "Follies" opened on April 4, 1971, and starred Dorothy Collins, John McMartin, Gene Nelson and Alexis Smith. It ran for 522 performances in the Winter Garden Theatre and received seven Tony Awards®, including Best Original Score. The current Broadway run at the Marquis Theatre opened to critical acclaim September 12 after 38 preview performances. Prior to its Broadway run, the revival production played a highly successful six-week run in the Kennedy Center Eisenhower Theater from May 7 to June 19, 2011.
