Follies, according to Kennedy Center, "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."
Here, the cast talks about how they got involved with the production, their character interpretations and the challenge of dance in the Stephen Sondheim musical.
The Kennedy Center production of Follies has performances running through June 19 at the Eisenhower Theater. Signature Theatre artistic director Eric Schaeffer directs the musical with choreography by Warren Carlyle.
