24 - 25 May, 2016 - Melbourne Recital Centre
For three performances only, a stellar cast including David Hobson, Lisa McCune, Philip Quast, Nancye Hayes, Debra Byrne and Cheryl Barker come together for a must-see theatrical event, the celebrated Follies in Concert. With book by James Goldman, Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Follies will be presented in concert format using the full 23-piece orchestrations.
The show features the classic hits ‘Broadway Baby’, ‘I’m Still Here’, and ‘Losing My Mind’. This rare gathering of Australia’s biggest stars from musical theatre will be one of this year’s most talked about theatrical events. This is your chance to secure your seats before they go on sale to the general public!
Storeyboard Entertainment must be congratulated in managing to produce this star-studied concert version, especially when other producers are flooding the market with more commercial product and far less substance. It’s a shame that the season is so short, as the sheer mastery of Follies still shines and should be experienced by anyone who loves musical theatre.Australian Stage
David Hobson surprises with a lively vaudevillian turn in Buddy’s Blues.
Lisa McCune brings a haunting stillness to Losing my Mind.
Anne Wood sizzles.
Debra Byrne is sensational.Simon Parris – Man in Chair
To hear that orchestra, with the great Jonathan Tunick’s original orchestrations, was nothing short of magic.
Lisa (McCune) is truly at the top of her game.
Nancye Hayes…..is sheer perfection
