TWO SPECIAL THEATER EVENTS AND THE REGULAR SEASON OPENER
For a very short run, actually just October 1 - 3, the CALDWELL THEATRE COMPANY in Boca Raton is presenting a concert staging of the Stephen Sondheim - James Goldman musical FOLLIES. This is the third in what has become a Sondheim retrospective. The theater began with SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE and followed with INTO THE WOODS. Both stagings proved such a hit with audiences that FOLLIES now takes its turn. The story is set in New York in the 1970s. A theater is about to be demolished. Before the wrecking ball does its work, cast members of the Weissmann Follies meet for a reunion. They share their past experiences and are not above a bit of dalliance tonight. This has always been one of Sondheim's most popular musicals. Since this is a reading, rather than a fully mounted show, prices are reduced. The cast, too numerous to name, is one you'll enjoy.
