HIT Broadway musical Follies comes to town next month when Saffron Walden Musical Theatre Company (SWMTC) present the cult show from March 9-13.
Follies - by legendary US composer Stephen Sondheim - combines the glamour and glitz of a Busby Berkley spectacular with sophistication, wit and intelligence.
It is the first time SWMTC has presented a show by Sondheim, whose other work includes Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods and A Little Night Music. He also wrote the lyrics for both West Side Story and Gypsy.
The show follows the company's recent successes Hello Dolly, Godspell and 42nd Street. The original New York production was nominated for 10 Tony awards; its 2001 revival earned a further five Tony nominations.
