Follies

$45-$150

When former members of the Weismann Follies reunite on the eve of their theater's demolition, two couples remember their past and face the harsher realities of the present. In the crumbling glamour of the theater, the shadows of their younger selves remind them of the complicated steps they've danced - both on the stage and throughout their lives. 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.
