Absolutely top-notch New York-caliber production chock full of talent. The sets, costumes, and lighting play an opulent co-starring role. The Ahmanson has brought New York to you - Go see it!

Fantastic! One of the few musicals that has this much depth.
Great performance by the entire cast including some veteran like Victoria Clark and Danny Burnstein.

We're Sondheim fans, but this is not his best. Some numbers were terrific, others pretty much of a bust because we couldn't understand the lyrics. Even as to the dialogue, there were many apparent jokes or zinger exit lines that we didn't get...continued

Wonderful show. Great venue. Seats assigned in the mezzanine were perfect. We like a to see shows from the view a bit higher than the main floor so we can better see the staging.
The people in front of us were from Portland and thought the...continued

This was a wonderful escapist enchanting evening in the theater. If you are a Sondheim fan you shouldn't miss it. The four leads are standouts and the rest of the ensemble doesn't disappoint. Terri White brings down the house. It took a bit of...continued

Worthwhile attending this early Sondheim work but not overwhelmed by it. Some very good music but much of first act was slow and not that impressive. Good performances but not great. We did not think it was a "must see".

Excellent show. One of the best musicals I have ever seen. The story line had depth and meaning, the costumes and staging were outstanding, the singing, dancing and acting were all first rate. Really a great show.

I enjoy musicals, and have been attending shows at the Ahmanson for 30 years. This production of 'Follies' was by far the best show I have seen there. The voices and staging were amazing, and what a joy to see Elaine Paige on stage in Los Angeles!...continued

The venue parking was an outrage!!! I never write a bad review but this experience was appalling. It took us over 35 minutes to park underground at the Music Center where all the attendants we either illiterate and incompetent. We got to the...continued

I am so glad I had the opportunity to see this classic theatre production at the Ahmanson. A true theatre standard and an overall great production. The costumes were great and the scenery was well done. Broadway in LA!

we really enjoyed this well acted and excellent singing show! I did not know anything about the show, so, I was hesitant to go when I first heard of this musical. Of course when Goldstar offered tix I couldn't pass up the discounted prices!

This is the third time we have seen this glorious show and without question, this is the finest production. The entire cast is outstanding, pulling out all the stops in acting, singing and dancing. There's not a false note.
And, as we grow...continued

I saw this show on B'way in November and was very please to see it come to LA with the full NYC cast (except Bernadette). Amazing performances from everyone. Great singing, and pitch perfect acting. This is a must see show with a must see cast.

Story of 2 couples, at a party before the demolition of the theater used by the Follies -- with their younger selves in the Follies era played out in the background. Very effective. The whole cast was terrific! Enjoyed the play immensely!

I was unfamiliar with this play, but once it started realized I knew most of the songs. Wonderfully staged and fantastic cast, most were in the Broadway production.

I was looking for more big production numbers but over all it was a great performance and our seats were perfect.
