Judy and Andy Michlin hosted a party on September 8, which would be the second night of the Follies and invited all the cast and board. Most wore costumes and the showgirls wore red wigs.
"The Follies Showgirls!"
The Follies Showgirls are lavishly costumed and so glamorous that you won’t believe that they are all over 55.
The Follies is a spectacle of singing, dancing, glorious costumes and comedy.
You have to be 55 to be in the show but music keeps these performers young and this kind of music never gets old.
Many of our performers have had very successful careers on stage.
“WOW! This isn’t a talent show! The Follies rivals any major entertainment production on stage or screen!”
“Talk about entertainment! The Follies is a feast for the eyes and the ears!”
