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.”
