Hilarious and Powerful Musical about the Modern Family
Falsettos in a sentence: Marvin leaves his wife and child for a male lover, and his extended family attempts to co-exist in a revival of this Tony-winning hit musical.
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.
Falsettos in Rehearsal
William Finn and James Lapine’s Falsettos was first presented Off-Broadway as two separate shows: March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland, both premiering at Off Broadway’s Playwrights Horizons in 1981 and 1990, respectively. Both shows received extended and critically-acclaimed Off Broadway runs. Combining both one-act musicals, Falsettos opened on Broadway in 1992, where it ran for over a year at the John Golden Theatre and won Tony Awards for Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.

Critic’s Review from Time Out New York
Intimate, obstinate, heart-shattering…over and over, Finn pushes musical theater to the limits of what we can ask of it. Those who know the show may find fault with some of the revival’s choices. But flaws are written into “Falsettos,” as is the impulse it elicits to forgive them. In a world divided by pettiness but capable of better, the show feels as timely as ever.
