Today's image is titled Rehearsing 'Follies' and was photographed by Nadine Goff.
This photo shows five persons busy with rehearsing the 2008 production of Follies by Stephen Sondheim at the Four Seasons Theatre -- pianist Joy Bauman, musical director Andrew Abrams, Jamie Pitt (as "Young Sally"), Daniel Graupner (as "Young Buddy"), and Amanda Poulson (as "Young Phyllis"). It is one of fifteen images in a gallery shot by Goff that shows the first rehearsal for the production on January 6. "It's the first afternoon of Follies rehearsals and music director Andrew Abrams is quite pleased with what he's heard so far, but that doesn't mean everything is perfect," she writes from this gathering in the UW Humanities Building.
Goff also covered the auditions for Follies that were held last October, when casting began for every role other than the one already filled by Tom Wopat. It was her first in a series of reports and photo sets from many elements of the production that will run through February. "There are also scores of talented people involved in Follies, both on stage and behinds the scenes, and I plan to write about them," notes Goff, "as well as the behind the scenes saga of what's involved in creating a successful, professional musical theater production."
