Follies: The Complete Recording [1998 Cast Recording]

CD

Overview

FOLLIES is fabulous. This lavish double CD does more than document New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse's brilliant 1998 production of Stephen Sondheim's now-legendary but little seen 1971 musical; it also collects every lost song ever associated with the show on eight bonus tracks. A large and accomplished cast headed by Ann Miller, Laurence Guittard, Donna McKechnie, Tony Roberts, Dee Hoty, Eddie Bracken, Kaye Ballard, and Liliane Montevecchi bring fascinating new interpretations to this misty deconstruction of show business and its effects on those who toil in it. The dazzling score is among Sondheim's finest and features A-list material like "Beautiful Girls," "Broadway Baby," "Who's That Woman?" and "Could I Leave You?" McKechnie's torrid "Losing My Mind," one of Sondheim's most celebrated songs, is the musical highlight, but it's Miller's volcanic ode to survival, "I'm Still Here," that hits a grand-slam homer.
