• Hotel Follies

    Hotel Follies centres on its guests, each of whom is an artiste lodging at this renowned hotel, eager to succeed and entertain with a song to offer, a dance to share and a story to tell. Through interaction with the star-struck bellboy or the uptight maid, the atmosphere sweeps the audience back in time to the heady post-war days of the 1940s when anything and everything seemed possible.
