Harper Ensemble Theatre Company: An incredible theatrical event, this Sondheim musical masterpiece is an epic exploration of past regrets and misplaced hopes. The time is 1971, New York City and theatrical impresario Dimitri Weissmann hosts “a first and final reunion” of The Weismann Follies showgirls before their old theatre is demolished. Thirty years after their final performance, they gather to have a few drinks, sing and dance their old numbers and confront their demons. The show features some of Sondheim’s most memorable songs including: “Losing My Mind,” “I’m Still Here,” and “Broadway Baby.” Surreal, sophisticated, compelling, heart-wrenching and epic in scope, FOLLIES is sure to provide an evening of meaningful entertainment.
