Life's A Great Big Follies

We have a confession to make. While we think Stephen Sondheim is a genius - without question - we find his body of work to be hit or miss.

Some of his musicals are epic and timeless classics. While we find some others difficult to sit through. That was the case with our last Sondheim experience, when we saw the awful revival of Company on Broadway. We loved Raul Esparza in that revival, but we did not like the production - nor are we a fan of the show.

We'd never seen Follies before, so we weren't quite sure what to expect when we caught it Friday night on Broadway. THANKFULLY, we loved it!

Sure, the first act starts off very slowly, but once the stakes raise and the emotions intensify, it quickly became a very gripping show! And the music! Wow! Some of Sondheim's best work!

I'm Still Here, Broadway Baby, and In Buddy's Eyes - to name a few!

And, WOW, did this production feature an all-star cast! Bernadette Peters was fabulous! That voice is like honey! And STILL flawless! She told us backstage she doesn't smoke or even drink - and you could tell! She really protects her precious instrument and her voice is still something to be experienced!

Elaine Paige was fabulous, but her role is very supporting.

The real revelation in this production was Jan Maxwell. We'd never seen her in anything before and weren't familiar with her, but we are now obsessed! Wow! Wow! Wow! She was soooooooo good!

Really enjoyed Follies!
