Joannah is hauntingly beautiful. Follies has really wonderful songs.I could go on for pages but I'll stop here.Frank J. Lumia, MD

Have seen it 5 times with a variety of Roses (Merman x2, Landsbury, Preters, and Ann Southern,lus the movie and Bette Midler's TV production. Each were different. But the show is super.

I :did not see the show because a good friend hated it. Wish I had seen it. I did see the London recent production at the movies. The music is really good. I think the original was not well received because the young cast could not play the characters when older. Too bad.
