    Synopsis: 

    Considered by many to be one of the greatest musicals of all time, Follies transports the audience to the once-spectacular, but now crumbling, Weissman Theatre, where on the eve of its demolition, ghosts from its glorious past return and showgirls from decades ago reunite–and remember–one last time. This truly amazing musical features a book by James Goldman and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

    A Gritty Vision Of Faded Gold

    Ben Brantley

    April 6, 2001: The beauty we fell in love with 30 years ago isn't looking so good these days. I ran into her at the Belasco Theater the other night. She's turned all brittle and cynical, and she's thin to the point of emaciation. Worst of all, she seems to have lost any real sense of who she is. Sad, isn't it, what the years can do to a great musical?
