What the popular press said...

"A vigorous heart ... beats at the center of this ... revival."
Ben Brantley for NY Times

"There's a lot to savor... There are also letdowns."
Joe Dziemianowicz for NY Daily News

"Rather than a seamless whole, the show feels like barely connected musical numbers of varying quality."
Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"For those well-acquainted with the work, the result is a cruelly tantalizing miss. For audiences unfamiliar with "Follies," this production may prove more satisfying."
Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

"An exhilarating experience for any lover of musicals."
Robert Feldberg for The Record

"Sophisticated in content and striking in craft, 'Follies' remains unlike any other Broadway musical."
Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

"If this revival ... isn't flawless, its transcendent moments more than offset its imperfections."
David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"Thrilling and terrific."
Steven Suskin for Variety
