Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical is staged for the first time at the National Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas.

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. Featuring a cast of 37 and an orchestra of 21, it’s 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.

SCREENINGS OF NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE EVENTS ARE ON A TIME-DELAY AND MAY NOT BE SCREENED ON THE SAME DAY OR TIME AS THE LIVE PERFORMANCE.

NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE IS DISTRIBUTED OUTSIDE THE U.K. THROUGH NEW YORK-BASED BY EXPERIENCE, INC.
