The Will Rogers FolliesA Life in Review

Broadway's Tony Award winning musical The Will Rogers Follies once again charmed North America during the 2005-06 Phoenix tour starring Grammy Award winner Larry Gatlin. Magnificent sets by Tony Walton, dazzling costumes by Willa Kim, and the cutting edge technology of Versatube Lighting took this revival production to soaring new heights. A real Broadway musical spectacular that paid deserving tribute to the man who brought and kept a smile on the face of America and never met a man he didn't like!
