Atlanta Lyric Theatre presents The Will Rogers Follies as the first show of the 2009-10 season. This bright and breezy Tony Award-winning production focuses on the life and career of famed humorist and performer Will Rogers, using as a backdrop the Ziegfeld Follies, which he often headlined, and describes every episode in his life in the form of a big production number.
The revue contains snippets of Rogers’ famous homespun style of wisdom and common sense to convey the personality of this quintessentially American figure whose most famous quote was “I never met a man I didn’t like.”
Gorgeous show girls, rope tricks, big dance numbers and Will Rogers, what more could you ask for in a musical?
