The Astoria Performing Arts Center (APAC), one of our favorite arts organizations in town, is preparing its run of the beloved Tony award-winning musical, Follies. This is one of the greats of musical theater, with music and lyrics by the legendary Stephen Sondheim, and the play’s book by James Goldman. Here’s a summary:

Before their former theater is demolished, the former “Weismann Follies” showgirls reunite to say goodbye. In one evening, memory and time intermingle as two couples confront the truth about their past and their present in order to face the future. Featuring some of Sondheim’s most well-known songs, including “Losing My Mind,” “I’m Still Here,” and “Broadway Baby,” Follies juxtaposes innocence with sophistication, harsh reality with surrealism, and the dreams of what will be with the regrets of what was.

We’ve got discounted tickets for We Heart Astoria readers, too! General Admission adult tickets are $15 (usually $18) with the code WHAFOLLIES. The code is available for all performances, which run from May 3 to 26, 2018: Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm; Saturdays at 2pm. The show takes place at Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, 30-44 Crescent Street in Astoria.
