About the Show/Event
Find the best Follies musical tickets at Olivier (National Theatre), West End. It is 1971. Past and present, dreams and reality collide for one triumphant, haunting and unforgettable night when former members of the "Weismann's Follies" reunite on the eve of their theatre's demolition. Two couples remember their glorious past and face the harsher realities of the present as the shadows of their younger selves remind them of the complicated steps they've danced - both on the stage and throughout their lives.
