Classic Sondheim Gem In Melbourne
Soon they will have to call Melbourne by the name Broadway South (or is it that they should rename Broadway to Broadway North?). Last week, Wicked The Musical opened in Melbourne. Today, news that Jeanne Pratt and her team of artists have brought Stephen Sondheim’s Broadway classic Follies in a celebrated production in Melbourne at the State Theatre. Congratulations to all on the great notices. The cast includes Bud Tingwell, Debra Byrne, Anne Wood, John Diedrich, Nancye Hayes, Patti Newton, Judi Connelli, and big-buzz newcomer, the stunning Gemma-Ashley Kaplan. Click on the photos to enjoy the party.
