Following on from their hugely successful production of The Sound of Music last year, the Pied Pipers presents what is widely thought of as being Stephen Sondheim’s most important work. Time Magazine wrote “Follies has, no question, the best score on Broadway” and the New York Times wrote "stylish, innovative, it has some of the best lyrics I have ever encountered".

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.

Recently thrilling audiences in a hugely successful revival on Broadway, with sassy, show-stopping dance routines, beautiful costumes and iconic songs ('Losing my Mind' and 'Broadway Baby' to name but two), Follies is a groundbreaking show that defined musical theatre for a generation.
