    1. I mostly read this book for research, but it's really something, no?Truth be told, I've only heard some of the songs, so I probably should look up the rest. Even so, it's definitely interesting The nostalgia is really readable, if that makes sense. It makes the whole friendship and relationship aspect between the four friends, Sally, Buddy, Phyllis, & Ben, quite human, sentimental almost.But now I'm sounding silly & perhaps somewhat pretentious. It's almost difficult to think this could [...]

    2. Picked this up after reading Ted Chapin's Everything Was Possible; and there's just something about it that really appeals to me. The plot, that Gloria Swanson photo that inspired it, it's a spark to pierce the dark for me. Listened along with the Original Broadway cast as I read, and had a grand old time. One of Sondheim's best scores.

    3. I love the music from this show. I am not going to lie about that. The original cast album is filled with electric performances from Yvonne DeCarlo, Alexis Smith and Dorothy Collins. The London cast album boasts the charming Diana Rigg as Phyllis and the concert recording has Carol Burnett, Lee Remick and Elaine Stritch among its performers. Follies is a show that is well served by it's recordings - which is a good thing because the book itself is more than a little depressing. The plot takes pl [...]

    4. Worst musical ever conceived for the Broadway stage. And I have seen Grease! Having had to suffer through the show twice, I have come to the conclusion that Follies is a terrible show. There is no plot to drive that forward momentum of the show, except the characters belief that they ruined their lives. I am sorry but I don't want to go see a show where people are complaining about how miserable they are. Follies is proof that Sondheim cannot write a second act. For no reason, the four leads fin [...]

    5. Overall, the 1971 script is much better. I do like the new order of scenes and some songs in this script, I think they help the flow of the show better. There are, however, many charming elements missing from the monologues and cameo scenes by the other Follies actors. The text between the main couples is really watered down in a number of places, not least of which is the rather anti-climactic ending. I much prefer the original ending, especially Sally's lines "oh dear God, it is tomorrow," whi [...]

    6. 2.5 -- The concept is excellent, but it didn't hold my attention like Sondheim normally does. I love reading scripts, but this is one that I believe would fare better on stage.

    7. What do you call a musical with a sad story, beautiful music, and sympathetic but unlikeable characters? Follies.
