FOLLIES IN CONCERT


An 'all-star' charity concert of the Broadway musical with book by James Goldman and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

London Palladium London
Sunday 4 February 2007 at 7.15pm
Tickets: 150.00 to 25.00
Box Office: 0870 167 0002

Follies in Concert will benefit Starlight Childrens Foundation and Kingston Hospital Cancer Unit Appeal.

Written by James Goldman with music and lyrics by Sondheim, the score of Follies contains some of Sondheim's best-loved songs including Losing My Mind, Broadway Baby and I'm Still Here. The show takes place in a soon-to-be demolished theatre, where the impresario throws a reunion party for the showgirls who performed in revues there from 1918-41. The reunion brings back together former showgirls Sally and Phyllis, whose relationships with their husbands Ben and Buddy are affected by events that took place 30 years ago. The musical was first produced on Broadway in 1971, and was seen at London's Shaftesbury theatre in a reworked version in 1987. It was later revived at the Royal Festival Hall for a month long season in 2002.
