Who wrote Falsettos The Musical? – Background on the show
Written against the backdrop of the AIDS epidemic by powerhouse duo William Finn and James Lapine, who are behind the recent musical adaptation of Little Miss Sunshine (Arcola Theatre), Falsettos first premiered as a whole on Broadway at the John Golden Theatre in 1992. It had previously run as two separate shows – March of the Falsettos (Off-Broadway, 1981) and Falsettoland (Off-Broadway, 1990) – before being combined into one.
The original Broadway production received seven Tony Award nominations and went on to win two for Best Original Score and Best Book. Two decades later in 2016, the show received a Broadway revival, which was nominated for four Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical.
What is the Falsettos musical about?
Finn and Lapine's hilarious musical Falsettos follows the story of a gay Jewish man named Marvin who has just left his now ex-wife Trina to be with his boyfriend Whizzer Brown. The musical takes a poignant look at the life of a modern family, also exploring the relationships with his son Jason, who is soon to have a bar mitzvah, and his psychiatrist Mendel and lesbian neighbours Dr. Charlotte and Cordelia. Despite the show's heavy subject matter at times, it manages to remain lighthearted throughout as it slowly drifts towards the ultimate heartbreaking ending.
