The grit and the glory: Fol­lies

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

In Stephen Sond­heim’s 1971 mu­si­cal

Fol­lies, long-re­tired show­girls con­vene to re­call the grandeur — and the gritty re­al­ity — of their pro­fes­sion and to ex­am­ine the lives they have led in pass­ing decades. A re­vival that opened this past Septem­ber to im­mense ac­claim at Lon­don’s Na­tional The­atre goes in­ter­na­tional thanks to the NT Live in HD se­ries. You can catch the broad­cast at 7 p.m. on Thurs­day, Feb. 8, at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter, 211 W. San Fran­cisco St. Tick­ets ($22) can be or­dered through www.tick­ (505-988-1234). There’s no in­ter­mis­sion in this show, which runs two hours and 15 min­utes, so plan your evening ac­cord­ingly. — James M. Keller
