Casual, but you might want to consider a light sweater as the air really cools the theatre.

Description

Will Rogers is famous for saying “I never met a man I didn’t like,” and anyone who has ever seen or performed in Will Rogers Follies will agree that there has never been a man-or woman-who did not like it.

Subtitled “A Life In Revue,” Will Rogers Follies stands out among musicals because of the magic of its protagonist. Rare is the man who transcends decades and rises to the level of legend. Will Rogers does this not only because of his accomplishments, but because of his philosophy, which espouses respect and confidence in the goodness of his fellowman.

Will Rogers was a unique American who, though he died almost sixty years ago, remains a beloved figure remembered for his humor, his wisdom, and his just plain common sense. At the heart of his populist philosophy was his most famous statement: “I never met a man I didn’t like.” Rogers became the biggest, most popular, and highest paid star of every existing medium of his time—stage, screen, radio, newspapers, and public appearances. In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that he was the greatest star this country has ever produced.
