Did you know that the original Christine and Al from A Chorus Line, fell in love and got married in the show Follies?
In 1971, the musical Follies opened at the Winter Garden and changed Broadway forever. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by James Goldman, Follies went down in history as one of the most ambitious and extraordinary Broadway shows of all time. Produced by Hal Prince and co-directed by Prince and Michael Bennett, the show brought together a creative team and cast of unparalleled talent to tell the story of a reunion of showgirls at a theater about to be demolished. Now this beloved musical about a reunion will receive a reunion of its own at BroadwayCon. Join moderator Jennifer Ashley Tepper (“The Untold Stories of Broadway”) and members of the original Follies team, including Steve Boockvor (original cast), Ted Chapin (original production assistant, author of “Everything Was Possible”), Mary Jane Houdina (original Young Hattie, assistant to Bennett), Denise Pence (original swing), Kurt Peterson (original Young Ben) and more as they share stories about when life was fun but oh so intense.
