Follies National Theatre London tickets on sale now!

Follies, the award-winning musical by legendary composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim (Company, Sweeney Todd, Gypsy, West Side Story), has returned to the National Theatre for a strictly limited run. The 2017 London revival of Follies was nominated for nine Olivier Awards last year, taking home the award for Best Musical Revival and Best Costume Design (Vicki Mortimer). Considering that the Sondheim musical completely sold out at the National Theatre in 2017, Follies tickets are already in high demand. Be sure to book your tickets as soon as possible for the best seats and prices!

What is the Follies musical about?

Flashback to 1971's New York. A razzmatazz party is bumping and bustling on the Weismann Theatre stage. Tomorrow, this historical Broadway theatre faces demolition, having once served as the iconic venue for the Weismann's Follies production nearly three decades ago. The show's past performers reunite on the eve of the building's destruction to sing some tunes and reminisce the good times before the next day's fateful wrecking ball.

Richard Briginshaw30th March

Dreams distorted by time set to a backdrop of feathers, sequins and brilliant dancing. A very poignant and a grate way to spend an evening.

Jeffrey Melvoin29th March

Best production I have ever seen of this ambitious show; one of the best nights I have ever spent in a theater period. Superb direction, performance, wardrobe, lighting, and design. Utter magic.
