Justine Johnston

Performer

Justine Johnston, who as Heidi Schiller in the original Broadway production of Stephen Sondheim's seminal work about art, life and loss, Follies, sang the elegiac waltz "One More Kiss," died of a stroke Jan. 13, 2006, the Los Angeles Times reported. She was 84. In the 1971 musical—which takes place in an old theatre, once home of a series of "Follies" shows, and now the site of a pre-demolition gathering of former stage stars—the regal Heidi is shadowed by a vision of her younger self as she sings her signature number, composed by Sondheim in imitation of the operetta-like music popular during the early decades of Broadway.
