Follies features one of the most haunting and memorable scores by musical theater pioneer Stephen Sondheim. With hits such as "Losing My Mind" and "Broadway Baby," it begs the eternal question: how do we reconcile out past with our present? The year is 1971, and the Weismann Theater, once home to the iconic Weismann Follies, is set to be torn down. At a reunion of its former stars - a single night filled with nostalgia, champagne, and secrets - we see the bittersweet, long-lasting marriages of two couples held to task. Follies invites us all to take a closer look at how beautiful a life, long lived, can truly be.

"... irresistible to anyone who has lived long enought to fathom the meaning of aging, lost youth, [and] mortality"
-John Simon, New York Magazine
