Post Follies....?
Anyone else think it's sad that Follies doesn't have it's own board?

Its a crime. Follies is not only Sondheim's finest work but one of the 5 best musicals ever written.

but crap like Cinderella,Wicked, and Starlight Express have their own boards

The book has some problems and it is almost impossible to mount. It does have the greatest musical score ever written. Absolute perfection!

So first you mentions the problems it has and then you say its perfection?

Contradict yourself much?

He said it is the score that is perfection. The book, which is a different thing, has problems.

I agree, Follies needs a board. I'd certainly post on it a lot

I'm so excited! A local CT is doing Follies. I only wish I were a few years older so that I could audition and get a decent role... I don't think there's a place for a 16 year old.
