Astoria Performing Arts Center presents Stephen Sondheim's classic musical where, before their former theater is demolished, the former "Weismann Follies" showgirls reunite to say goodbye.
In one evening, memory and time intermingle as two couples confront the truth about their past and their present in order to face the future. Featuring some of Sondheim's most well-known songs, including "Losing My Mind," "I'm Still Here," and "Broadway Baby," 'Follies' juxtaposes innocence with sophistication, harsh reality with surrealism, and the dreams of what will be with the regrets of what was.
