Dominic Cooke's production of Stephen Sondheim's Follies has returned to the National Theatre and we went along to the opening night to chat with some of the cast and guests.

Following its award-winning run at the National in 2017, the production returns with a cast including Joanna Riding (who replaces Imelda Staunton), Janie Dee, Tracie Bennett and Gemma Sutton.

Cooke's production has Olivier Award-winning designs by Vicki Mortimer, choreography by Bill Deamer, music supervision by Nicholas Skilbeck, orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick with Josh Clayton, music direction by Nigel Lilley, lighting by Paule Constable and sound by Paul Groothuis.
