Bernadette Peters is back on Broadway in “Follies”

HollywoodNews.com: Any time the great Bernadette Peters is on Broadway it is cause for celebration.

The two-tine Tony winner appeared most recently in A Little Night Music and now she is back heading the cast of Follies which officially opens on Monday, September 12, 2011 at the Marquis Theatre.

Production shots have been released of Miss Peters in the role of Sally Durant Plummer and I had to share some with all of you.

Here’s the plot: When former members of the “Weismann Follies” reunite on the eve of their theater’s demolition, two couples remember their past and face the harsher realities of the present. Reminiscing of their younger selves and the years gone by, the crumbling theater brings back memories for both couples of good times and bad.

The score features some of Stephen Sondheim’s best-known songs, including Broadway Baby, I’m Still Here, Too Many Mornings, Could I Leave You?, and Losing My Mind.

Follies originally opened on April 4, 1971 at the Winter Garden Theatre where it ran for 522 performances and received seven Tony Awards, including Best Original Score.

The current production with Miss Peters played a limited engagement at the Kennedy Center Eisenhower Theater opening on May 7 and closing with sold-out houses on June 19, 2011.
