The longest running Follies of all time, the show was once credited with saving downtown Palm Springs, having attracted busloads of patrons to historic Plaza Theatre before every performance during a time when no other live theater existed in the Greater Palm Springs area. The Follies became world-famous for its Broadway-caliber celebration of the music, dance, and comedy of Mid-Century America, uniquely performed by a senior-citizens cast old enough to have lived it.
"Our 23rd season will be a 'greatest hits' version of our show," said Follies Producer and Co-Founder Riff Markowitz, "with the best dance production numbers and variety acts of past years, and three iconic headliners packed into one last spectacular Follies season. It will be a fitting and exciting last hurrah." Markowitz is also a part of the cast; in fact, as Follies master of ceremonies, he hasn't missed a single show since its premier in 1992. "It's hard for me to believe that sometime during the coming season we will seat our three-millionth audience member.”
