Lanford Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning romantic comedy proves the notion that one enchanted evening can change the course of life. It's 1944, and Matt and Sally are past the age of romance. Communication has broken down within their unlikely summer romance, and Sally is resigned to being alone again. She's Protestant and wealthy; he's older and Jewish. Over the course of one evening in a dilapidated boathouse, they become brave enough to reveal their most painful secrets to each other. Winner of both the 1980 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, Talley's Folly is a romantic comedy of great lyrical force. Learn More

Cute theater. The show was okay. The singing fell flat at times and the choreography needed some help. A few of the back ground cast members seemed to really lack enthusiasm. It made me wonder if they even wanted to be there. Overall, it was a fair attempt. The talent was apparent but,the chemistry between the cast wasn't.
During the time when De Silva’s concept was taking shape, the High School for the Performing Arts underwent its own major transformation. In 1984, the school merged with the High School of Music and Art to create what is now known as the Fiorello La Guardia School of the Arts. The new school, much larger and somewhat less personal than it’s predecessor, was relocated to a modern facility adjacent to the Lincoln Center. De Silva chose to use the final years of the old landmark building as the time frame for his new musical, following the progress of the last class to graduate.
