Follies (film adaptation)

Episode #2020

5/16      Follies (Stephen Sondheim's Pastiche) Nearly every song in Follies reflects a different style, time, or songwriter. The score was Sondheim's homage to American song. The trick was to resemble other songs without imitating them, and evoke something of the past while still being modern.
