Kennedy Center's 'Follies' heading to Broadway for limited run

The Kennedy Center's terrific revival of Stephen Sondheim's "Follies" is heading to Broadway. What is being called a "limited engagement" will open this summer at the Marquis Theatre (dates and casting TBA).

There was quite abuzz about this $7.3 million production before it opened, plenty more afterward. It wraps up a sold-out run in the Kennedy Center's Eisenhower Theater on Sunday.

I've got to assume that most of the stars will at least be asked to do the Broadway engagement. This team, which includes Bernadette Peters, Elaine Page, Jan Maxwell, Danny Burstein, Ron Raines and Linda Lavin, does some very stylish work. UPDATE: It looks like Linda Lavin is out; she has accepted another tehter gig -- a bigger part. She sure makes the most of "Broadway Baby," her moment in the "Follies" sun.
