Junction Goole to Broadcast NT’s Follies

Fans of National Theatre Live are in for a treat as National Theatre Live broadcast Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical, Follies on Thursday 16 November, 7pm.

Staged for the first time at the National Theatre the production is set in the soon-to-be demolished Weismann Theatre, and follows the stories of the chorus girls from its glittering heyday to its decline.

New York, 1971. There’s a party on the stage of the Weismann Theatre. Tomorrow the iconic building will be demolished. Thirty years after their final performance, the Follies girls gather to have a few drinks, sing a few songs and lie about themselves.
