Broadway Baby

"Follies" may well be my favorite musical.  Sondheim's lament looks at aging, regret and inevitable change in a heartbreaking manner. 

Set in a decrepit theater (about to be torn down to make way for a parking lot) in the 70s, the Weismann Girls (think Ziegfield) reunite for one last party on the stage they performed on decades before.

The star-studded cast at the Ahmanson Theater (nearly all of whom performed in the Tony-nominated revival) really impresses.

I can't stop hearing Victoria Clark singing "Losing My Mind" in my head.
