AllMusic Review by

Stephen Sondheim's Follies is a tale of midlife crises behind the guise of aging follies girls and their disappointing husbands. As the theater where the girls used to perform is about to be destroyed, they gather once more to celebrate it and to reflect on the directions their lives have taken. Sondheim's score has some wonderful highlights, including "Broadway Baby," "Could I Leave You?," and "I'm Still Here." This remains one of Sondheim's greatest scores. [This is the original release; the 1989 reissue features the songs "One More Kiss" and "The Story of Lucy and Jessie."]
