The show, which is choreographed by WhatsOnStage Award-winner Andrew Wright and supported by the City of London Philharmonic Orchestra, will play a matinee and evening performance.
According to press material: "With a wealth of well-known songs, including 'Losing My Mind', 'Broadway Baby' and 'I'm Still Here', this iconic and much-loved show is being performed in celebration of composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim's 85th birthday this year."
Set in a crumbling old Broadway theatre scheduled for demolition, Follies sees two couples, Buddy and Sally Durant Plummer and Ben and Phyllis Rogers Stone, look back over their relationships during a reunion.
