Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see what many regard as the most groundbreaking made-for-TV musical alongside a reunion of some of the original creative team and cast. ‘Energy, power, bread and liberation’ – this was the promise made to all-female rock band The Little Ladies, who experience highs and lows as the ruthlessness of the music industry threatens their dreams. The musical numbers take us into the heart of the group and, like all great musicals, highlight the bitter disconnect between fantasy and reality. This is where glam rock meets feminism, and with huge contemporary resonance for the #MeToo movement, Rock Follies’ power remains undimmed.
