    National Theatre Live: 'Follies'

    National Theatre Live: 'Follies'

    Tools

    Tue., Nov. 21, 7 p.m.

    There’s nothing quite like a trip down memory lane with old friends and colleagues. In Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical Follies, several former performers gather in a soon-to-be-demolished Broadway theater to look back on their glory days as stars of a well-known musical revue. The ladies laugh, lament and, of course, lift their voices in soaring numbers such as “I’m Still Here” and “Who’s That Woman?” On Thursday, a cast of 37, including Imelda Staunton and Tracie Bennett, performs the bittersweet musical at London’s National Theatre, then audiences in South Burlington, Middlebury and St. Johnsbury watch an on-screen broadcast. at Catamount Arts Center in St. Johnsbury. Northeast Kingdom (map). $16-25.
