My Photoshop creation of Loveland in the revised London production of Follies in 1987, with scenic and costume design by Maria Bjornson and lighting by Mark Henderson.
Millicent Martin (in red) was the second Phyllis Rogers Stone after Diana Rigg, and in reality this Loveland design only had one staircase, which lit up in rainbow colours.
Atop the platform, left to right; David Healy as Buddy, Julia McKenzie as Sally, Paul Bentley as Roscoe, Millicent Martin as Phyllis and Daniel Massey as Ben.
Loveland in the 2011 Broadway and Los Angeles production of Follies, scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Gregg Barnes and lighting design by Natasha Katz.
Scenic production by Boris Aronson for the Loveland sequence of broadway’s original 1971 production of Follies, “Broadway’s greatest scene change.”
I love how Dorothy Collins as Sally is mirroring the poses of the Loveland chorus girls in photographs from the original broadway production of Follies. Can you spy her third from the right in the top photo, second left below?
