Kennedy Center features Wednesday matinee of "Follies"

By Jacqueline Trescott

For those who like to leave the theater when it is still light outside, the Kennedy Center is featuring a Wednesday matinee of "Follies."

The award-winning musical from the lyrical master Stephen Sondheim arrives at the center May 7. Starting Bernadette Peters as Sally Durant Plummer, "Follies" will play at the Eisenhower Theater until June 19.The first Wednesday matinee is May 11.

A Wednesday matinee is a departure from what the center usually does; they are keeping the usual Saturday matinee. Both midday performances start at 1:30 p.m. And tickets are still available, according to the center.

The huge cast, which also includes Jan Maxwell, Danny Burstein, Ron Raines, Elaine Paige and Linda Lavin, will be directed by Eric Schaeffer, the artistic director of Signature Theatre. On Broadway "Follies" won seven Tony Awards.
