Showgirls and show makers gather to pay tribute to their theatrical past in Follies, a Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman musical that magnifies its characters’ dreams and illusions through emotional reminiscences. The play had a contemporary setting when it opened on Broadway in 1971, went on to win seven Tony Awards, and ran for more than 500 performances. This National Theatre revival (via live broadcast) casts Tracie Bennett, Janie Dee and Imelda Staunton as the magnificent Follies.

Sunday, January 7. $12.50-14.50, 7pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
