From the producers:,"Falsettos" revolves around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, lover, about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. It’s a hilarious and achingly poignant look at the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family… and a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories.
William Finn and James Lapine’s one-act musical "March of the Falsettos" premiered at Playwrights Horizons in 1981, followed by an extended Off Broadway engagement. In 1990, Finn and Lapine’s second new musical "Falsettoland," dealing with most of the same characters, opened at Playwrights Horizons and repeated the success of its predecessor with another successful Off Broadway run. In 1992, the two one-act musicals were combined into one and opened on Broadway as "Falsettos," ran for over a year at the John Golden Theatre and won Tony Awards for Finn’s score and Finn and Lapine’s book.
The cast includes two-time Tony Award winner Christian Borle ("Something Rotten!," "Peter and the Starcatcher"), Tony nominee Stephanie J. Block ("Wicked," "Drood"), Tony nominee Andrew Rannells ("The Book of Mormon"), Tracie Thoms, Betsy Wolfe, Tony nominee Brandon Uranowitz ("An American in Paris"), and Anthony Rosenthal.
