FOLLIES - NT LIVE
NATIONAL THEATRE CAPTURED LIVE IN HD FROM THE LONDON STAGE
‘Imelda Staunton is unforgettable in Steven Sondheim’s showbiz stunner.’
The team at Theatre Royal Castlemaine are thrilled to announce the return of Special Event Cinema to their big screen. Thanks to Sharmill Films, the Theatre Royal will present the critically-acclaimed National Theatre production of FOLLIES in full HD cinema on Sat 17 + Sun 18 February 2018.
Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical is staged for the first time at the National Theatre and broadcast captured live to cinemas.
New York, 1971. There’s a party on the stage of the Weismann Theatre. Tomorrow the iconic building will be demolished. Thirty years after their final performance, the Follies girls gather to have a few drinks, sing a few songs and lie about themselves.
Tracie Bennett, Janie Dee and Imelda Staunton play the magnificent Follies in this dazzling new production, joined by Australian stage and screen legend Philip Quast, winner of the Oliver Award for Best Actor in a Musical more than any other performer in history. Featuring a cast of 37 and an orchestra of 21, Follies is directed by Dominic Cooke (The Comedy of Errors).
Winner of Academy, Tony, Grammy and Olivier awards, Sondheim’s previous work includes A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd and Sunday in the Park with George.
