Musical – ‘Follies’, National Theatre, 18th February 2019

Everyone who knows me knows that big slightly-cheesy musicals are my thing (I am SO EXCITED about ‘Evita’ at the Open Air Theatre this summer!) ‘Follies’ also came highly recommended by my friends K and D, so it was always a given that I’d round up a couple of other friends to go and admire the singing and high-kicks.

It probably doesn’t even need saying that I loved it. Janie Dee and Joanna Riding were spectacular as the two former-friends-who-became-love-rivals. ‘Losing My Mind’ was a haunting and fantastic song; indeed, the whole musical score was perfect, huge credit to Sondheim for not even one dud in my opinion.

But what really blew my mind was the dancing. Stunning synchrony and excellent choreography. I left wondering if I could leave my day job and retrain as a showgirl…

Overall: a beautiful, glamourous, huge show.
