“FOLLIES is truly awesome and, if it is not consistently good, it is always great” – Martin Gottfried
The Weismann Theatre in New York City is being razed for a parking lot. After decades of presenting beautiful Weismann Girls in those lavish Weismann Follies, all the memories will disappear—for a parking lot. But before that happens, Dimitri Weismann will host one last night of celebration with the stars of the past three decades. Among the guests are two couples who are plunged into the past and are made to face their folly in life. Music fills the evening: “Broadway Baby”, “I’m Still Here”, “Losing My Mind” and many more, completing the wonderful evening called FOLLIES. You may even catch a glimpse of the ghost of a former showgirl or two.
