The year: 1971.
The place: the remnants of the iconic theatre that was once home to the famous Weismann Follies.
The occasion: a first and last reunion of the people who worked, loved and lived there in its glory days between the wars – the night before the building is set for demolition.
And you have an invitation to join the party!
Set against a backdrop of bittersweet nostalgia, the Follies showgirls of a bygone era drink, laugh, “lie about themselves a little” and perform the show-stopping numbers that once made them famous.
Stephen Sondheim’s stunning musical focuses on two married couples – and we have three fantastic performers making their Pick Me Up debuts: Tracey Rea as Sally, Glynn Mills as her husband Buddy, and David Radford as Ben, husband of Phyllis, played by Pick Me Up regular Susannah Baines, whose roles have included Mrs Lovett in Sweeney Todd, Rose in Gypsy, and the Witch in Into The Woods.
A Pick Me Up Theatre production.
