"Brilliant." -Newsweek "Intoxicating! Sondheim's achingly introspective score ranks among the most sublime he's ever written." -Washington Post "Goldman's many-layered book merges past and present with resonating counterpoint, linking bittersweet memories of the past with an homage to survivors of a glorious age." -Variety "Oh bliss! You realize anew just why Follies is one of the greatest musicals ever written." -New York Times "Uniquely powerful and evanescent." -Los Angeles Times When former members of the Weismann Follies reunite on the eve of their theatre's demolition, two couples remember their glorious past and face the harsher realities of the present. In the crumbling glamour of the theatre, the shadows of their younger selves remind them of the complicated steps they've danced--both on the stage and throughout their lives. Winner of seven Tony Awards, Follies echoes the songs, exuberance and romance of the lively vaudevillian days between the two World Wars. With such well-known songs as "Broadway Baby," "I'm Still Here," "Too Many Mornings," "Could I Leave You?" and "Losing My Mind," Follies gives words to the ghosts that haunt the stages of Broadway's great old theatres.… (més)

Overall, the 1971 script is much better. I do like the new order of scenes and some songs in this script, I think they help the flow of the show better. There are, however, many charming elements missing from the monologues and cameo scenes by the other Follies actors. The text between the main couples is really watered down in a number of places, not least of which is the rather anti-climactic ending. I much prefer the original ending, especially Sally's lines "oh dear God, it is tomorrow," which is such an important moment for her character. Stick with the original, if you can get it. This is well worth the read, if only to fully appreciate the original. ( )
