The Swan Theatre presents:

NT Live: Follies

Based on the book by James Goldman

Music & Lyrics by Stephan Sondheim

Directed by Dominic Cooke

Tracie Bennett, Janie Dee and Imelda Staunton play the magnificent Follies in this dazzling production. Featuring a cast of 37 and an orchestra of 21, Stephen Sondheim's legendary musical was directed by Dominic Cooke and filmed live on stage at the National Theatre in 2017.

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.

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.

Filmed Live from the National Theatre in 2017
