By Stephen Sondheim

Directed by Katrina Williams Brunner; music directed by Andrew Abrams

Presented in cooperation with the Wisconsin Union Theater and starring Tony Nominee Tom Wopat as Ben, our staged concert version of "Follies" will feature a full 27 piece orchestra on stage with a cast of seasoned actors and singers from across Dane County.

The time is 1971, and theatrical impresario Dimitri Weissmann (famous for his garish Weissmann Follies of yesteryear) hosts a reunion of ex-Follies performers in his crumbling theatre, setting the stage for a parade of brilliant ‘20s, ‘30s and ‘40s pastiche numbers that have become every bit as famous as their models: “Losing My Mind,” “I’m Still Here” and “Broadway Baby,” to name a few. Amid the reminiscing, two middle-aged couples confront some unpleasant truths about their past and present and come face to face with the future.
