Following a successful run in Washington, DC, the Kennedy Center production of James Goldman and Stephen Sondheim's Tony Award-winning Follies begins previews at Broadway's Marquis Theatre Aug. 7.

Follies concerns a group of former "Follies" stars who return to the site of their former glory, the Weismann Theatre, which is about to be demolished. Old wounds resurface as two Follies stars (Phyllis and Sally) and their husbands (Benjamin and Buddy) reassess their lives and what could have been.

The production will be headed by two-time Tony winner Bernadette Peters as Sally Durant Plummer, four-time Tony nominee Jan Maxwell as Phyllis Rogers Stone, two-time Tony nominee Danny Burstein as Buddy Plummer, three-time Emmy nominee Ron Raines as Benjamin Stone and Olivier winner Elaine Paige as Carlotta. Eric Schaeffer directs.
