Storeyboard Entertainment presents
FOLLIES IN CONCERT
Melbourne, 24-25 May 2016
For three performances only in May, exclusive to Melbourne, a stellar line-up of Australian musical theatre stars including
David Hobson, Lisa McCune and Nancye Hayes
will come together for a must-see theatrical event, the celebrated FOLLIES IN CONCERT at the Melbourne Recital Centre.
With 23 musicians playing the full and original Broadway orchestrations and further all-star casting to be announced, this presentation of the celebrated Broadway musical, with book by James Goldman and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, will be an evening long remembered.
Originally produced on Broadway in 1971, directed by Harold Prince (The Phantom of the Opera) and Michael Bennett (A Chorus Line), FOLLIES was nominated for eleven Tony Awards, winning seven including Best Score. The show features the classic hits ‘Broadway Baby’, ‘I’m Still Here’ and ‘Losing My Mind’.
FOLLIES is set at a reunion of the soon-to-be demolished Weismann Theatre, once the home of the Weismann Follies. Before the wrecking ball demolishes the fated building to make way for a parking lot, the former stars of the follies gather to relive their past experiences, renew old friendships…and lie about themselves a little.
FOLLIES has been revived in the US and UK many times and you can now see this wonderful show – as written with full orchestrations and a star-studded cast. It promises to be a rare gathering of Australia’s biggest and brightest musical theatre stars in what will be one of the year’s most talked about theatrical events.
