Sondheim's Follies to return to National next year

Speaking at the Critics' Circle Awards in London earlier this week, director Dominic Cooke confirmed that the National Theatre production of Stephen Sondheim's Follies will return next year.

 "We are going to bring Follies back. We think it'll be around this time next year but we aren't sure. We don't know who's going to be cast, everything is up for grabs. It'll be at the National, and the hope is that it'll go somewhere afterwards but at the moment we're focussing on the Olivier.It gives us the chance to go back and rework things, and rediscover things, and creatively that's a real privilege."

Follies opened at the National in September 2017 and closed at the start of 2018. The original production featured a cast of 37 including Imelda Staunton, Janie Dee, Tracie Bennett, Zizi Strallen, Philip Quast, Adam Rhys-Charles, Peter Forbes.
