Composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim and librettist James Goldman's landmark 1971 musical returns to Broadway in a production The New York Times raved '[makes] you realize anew just why Follies is one of the greatest musicals ever written.' A bittersweet look at the follies of youth seen through the eyes of age and experience, this new production stars two-time Tony Award-winner Bernadette Peters as Sally Durant Plummer, four-time Tony Award-nominee Jan Maxwell as Phyllis Rogers Stone, two-time Tony Award-nominee Danny Burstein as Buddy Plummer, threetime Emmy Award-nominee Ron Raines as Benjamin Stone and four-time Olivier Award-nominee Elaine Paige as Carlotta Campion, under the direction of Eric Schaeffer.
The cast of 41 is backed up by a 28-piece orchestra, conducted by James Moore. The Tony Award-winning score -- 21 songs in all -- reveals the full range of Sondheim's brilliance, nimbly alternating between incisive, insightful book numbers ('Waiting for the Girls Upstairs,' 'The Road You Didn't Take' and 'Could I Leave You') and stunning pastiches of yesteryear ('Broadway Baby,' 'Beautiful Girls' and 'Losing My Mind'). Now, PS Classics and producer Tommy Krasker - who has helmed over a dozen Sondheim cast recordings - preserve this unparalleled work of genius in an expansive two-disc set.
