Astoria Performing Arts Center’s production of Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman’s Follies runs May 3–26 at the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church in Astoria, Queens.
The 1971 musical about a group of former follies performers who reunite at their soon-to-be-demolished theatre for one last look at the past will mark APAC’s final production at the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, which has been home to the IT Award-winning company for the last 10 years. A new performance space is expected to be announced later this summer.
The cast includes APAC veterans Marcie Henderson (Raisin, Allegro) and Greg Horton (Raisin, Merrily We Roll Along) as Phyllis and Buddy, with Tina Stafford (Once national tour) and Bruce Sabath (Company on Broadway) as Sally and Ben.
