Featuring a cast of 37 and an orchestra of 21, Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical was directed by Dominic Cooke (The Courier) and filmed live on the London 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.

Saw this production in London. Other than the Paper Mill Playhouse 1998 revival, this production comes the closest to the original 1971 Broadway production, which I was lucky enough to see. This film version, with its camera angles & close-ups, made me like the London revival even more. I hope NTL issues it on DVD.
