Two-time Tony Award winner Bernadette Peters (Sally Durant Plummer), four-time Tony nominee Jan Maxwell (Phyllis Rogers Stone), two-time Tony nominee Danny Burstein (Buddy Plummer) and three-time Emmy Award nominee Ron Raines (Benjamin Stone) lead the cast of the Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman's Follies, which recently began previews Aug. 7, following a successful run at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in DC.


Directed by Eric Schaeffer (Putting It Together, Million Dollar Quartet) and featuring choreography by Warren Carlyle (Finian's Rainbow), Follies is set for an official opening Sept. 12. Here, Playbill.com has a sneak peek of the Broadway revival.

Here's how the Kennedy Center production was billed: "Follies is a bittersweet look at the follies of youth seen through the eyes of age and experience. When former members of the 'Weismann's Follies' reunite on the eve of their theater's demolition, two couples remember their glorious past and face the harsher realities of the present. In the crumbling glamour of the theater, the shadows of their younger selves remind them of the complicated steps they've danced—both on the stage and throughout their lives."

The musical also features Olivier Award winner Elaine Paige as Carlotta Campion, Rosalind Elias as Heidi Schiller, Colleen Fitzpatrick as Dee Dee West, Michael Hayes as Roscoe, Tony nominee Jayne Houdyshell as Hattie Walker, Florence Lacey as Sandra Crane, Tony nominee Mary Beth Peil as Solange LaFitte, David Sabin as Dimitri Weismann, Frederick Strother as Max Deems, Terri White as Stella Deems, Christian Delcroix as Young Buddy, Nick Verina as Young Ben, Lora Lee Gayer as Young Sally, Kirsten Scott as Young Phyllis and Leah Horowitz as Young Heidi.
