    eBook James Goldman ☆ ☆ Follies PDF ↠ follies mobile, Follies PDF/EPUBPicked this up after reading Ted Chapin's Everything Was Possible; and there's just something about it that really appeals to me The plot that Gloria Swanson photo that inspired it it's a spark to pierce the dark for me Listened along with the Original Broadway cast as I read and had a grand old time One of Sondheim's best scores

    eBook James Goldman ☆ ☆ Follies PDF ↠ follies mobile, Follies PDF/EPUBI love the music from this show I am not going to lie about that The original cast album is filled with electric performances from Yvonne DeCarlo Alexis Smith and Dorothy Collins The London cast album boasts the charming Diana Rigg as Phyllis and the concert recording has Carol Burnett Lee Remick and Elaine Stritch among its performers Follies is a show that is well served by it's recordings which is a good thing because the book itself is than a little depressing The plot takes place at a reunion of the Weissman Follies as the theater they performed in from 1918 to 1941 is about to be torn down and replaced with a parking garage A good deal of the action takes place in the minds of the two leading couples Mr Ben Stone and his wife Phyllis and Mr Buddy Plummer and his wife Sally as they travel back in time to their youth when

    eBook James Goldman ☆ ☆ Follies PDF ↠ follies mobile, Follies PDF/EPUBWorst musical ever conceived for the Broadway stage And I have seen Grease Having had to suffer through the show twice I have come to the conclusion that Follies is a terrible show There is no plot to drive that forward momentum of the show except the characters belief that they ruined their lives I am sorry but I don't want to go see a show where people are complaining about how miserable they are Follies is proof that Sondheim cannot write a second act For no reason the four leads find themselves in Loveland What the hell is this all about? Are they acting this out in their mind? Are they in an actual place call
