Anyone who caught Dominic Cooke’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s Follies at the National Theatre during the 2017/2018 season were witness to a sensational performance by today’s guest. And for those of you who didn’t get to see it...you’re in luck, because Tracie Bennett is reprising her role of Carlotta Campion this Spring in what promises to be a very popular return run.

The opportunity to hear Tracie sing “I’m Still Here”, absolutely nailing Sondheim’s masterpiece of a song, should have punters racing to get tickets.

We had the chance to speak to Tracie during the last run about what it means to sing Sondheim’s classic tunes, holding the stage at the Olivier and what it means to return to The National to perform.
