The National Theatre’s revival of Follies, starring Imelda Staunton, officially opens in London September 6.

Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman’s landmark musical Follies originally opened on Broadway April 4, 1971, at the Winter Garden Theatre. Directed by Harold Prince and Michael Bennett, Follies tells the story of the Weismann Follies showgirls, who reunite one last time before their old theatre is torn down—singing and dancing through old numbers and confronting past regrets and misplaced hopes.
