Jennifer Coolidge, Laura Pitt-Pulford, Alistair Brammer & Alex Hanson join all-star Follies cast

Further casting has been confirmed for the upcoming concert staging of Follies at the Royal Albert Hall on 28th April, coinciding with Sondheim's 85th birthday.

Joining the all-star cast are Jennifer Coolidge, Laura Pitt-Pulford, Alistair Brammer (pictured right), Alex Hanson and Stefanie Powers. They join the previously announced Christine Baranski, Ruthie Henshall, Anita Dobson, Anita Harris, Roy Hudd and Russell Watson.

Craig Revel Horwood directs with choreography by Andrew Wright. The production will be supported by the City of London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Follies tells the story of the former showgirls of the Ziegfeld Follies, amidst a wealth of well-known songs, including 'Losing My Mind', 'Broadway Baby' and 'I’m Still Here'. Follies in Concert at the Royal Albert Hall marks the musical's dazzling return to London for the first time in 13 years, for one day only.

The production will be performed for one matinee (at 3pm) and one evening performance (at 7.30pm) only.
