The Rehoboth Beach Film Society announces the next play in the exciting series of National Theatre Live screenings.
Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical, FOLLIES, is staged for the first time at the National Theatre. Tracie Bennett, Janie Dee and Imelda Staunton play the magnificent Follies girls in this dazzling new production. The play features a cast of 37 and an orchestra of 21. The original Broadway production was the winner of seven Tony® awards.
It’s New York, 1971, and there’s a party on the stage of the Weismann Theatre. Tomorrow the iconic building will be demolished. Thirty years after their final performance, the Follies girls gather to have a few drinks, sing a few songs and lie about themselves. They sing and dance their old numbers and confront past regrets and misplaced hopes. This is a look at the decay of American show business and the dangers of living in the past.
