NT Live: Follies

The National Theatre's acclaimed production of Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical returns to the cinema for encore screenings.

New York, 1971. 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.

Tracie Bennett, Janie Dee and Imelda Staunton play the magnificent Follies in this dazzling new production, joined by Australian stage and screen legend Philip Quast, winner of the Oliver Award for Best Actor in a Musical more than any other performer in history. Featuring a cast of 37 and an orchestra of 21, Follies is directed by Dominic Cooke (The Comedy of Errors).

Winner of Academy, Tony, Grammy and Olivier awards, Sondheim’s previous work includes A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd and Sunday in the Park with George.
