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.

Excellent and original version of the original (which I saw 50 years ago!). Some interesting directorial choices, not all of which I agree with but all of which worked in their own way. Beautifully performed, nicely filmed, but be warned. . . it's very depressing show.
