The National Theatre will be putting on a new production of Stephen Sondheim's legendary musical, Follies.

Set in New York during the early 1970s, it tells the story of a party at the Weismann Theatre. The theatre is due to be demolished in the morning, and the Follies girls have gathered to have a few drinks and reminisce about their hey-day performance thirty years before.

The score includes classic songs like Broadway Baby, I'm Still Here and Losing My Mind.

The Independant★★★★★ – "Dominic Cooke's production surpasses your wildest dreams for this show" Daily Telegraph★★★★★ – "Unmissable. Razzmatazz, poignancy and cracking songs" Financial Times★★★★★ – "Spectacular. Outstanding"
