February 1998 – LOOKING BACK WITH SONDHEIM

Outside Questors Theatre in Ealing last week resembled a building site which inadvertently created the right mood for Stephen Sondheim’s Follies, staged inside, directed with great panache by Amanda Pask for Barnes & Richmond Operatic Society.

A fortuitous setting because James Goldman’s book has a famous theatre manager (modelled on the late Ziegfield), Dimitri Weissman, played with lan by Mick Cawson, giving a farewell party in his about-to-be-demolished theatre for all the old Follies girls from the Thirties to the Seventies.

What follows is not a wallow in nostalgia, but a revelation of marital discontent as the principals, two married couples, former Follies girls Sally and Phyllis, husbands Buddy and Ben, meet again after 30 years and uncover a microcosm of middle-aged disappointment, disillusion and frustration.
