The Olivier Award-winning production of Follies had its opening night last week, and the cast celebrated at the National Theatre.

Sondheim's hit musical, which follows the ladies of the Follies who reunite to celebrate their old venue before it is knocked down, returns following its previous run in 2017.


Directed by Dominic Cooke, critic Sarah Crompton gave the piece a five-star review, saying "It is a masterful realisation of a wise and truthful show. It feels both sad and life-enhancing. A triumph."
