Falsettos musical to transfer to the London theatre stage come August  

Two-time Tony Award-winning musical Falsettos is to receive both its UK and European premiere at the end of August 2019, it has been announced.

Written amidst the AIDS crisis of the early 1990s by both James Lapine and William Finn, who recently premiered their musical adaptation of Little Miss Sunshine at the Arcola Theatre, the show went on to win two Tonys for Best Book and Best Original Score in 1992 when it premiered at Broadway's John Golden Theatre that same year. The show was once known as two separate musicals  Falsettoland (Off-Broadway, 1990) and March of the Falsettos (Off-Broadway, 1981) – before it was combined to form the award-winning, two-act musical it's known today.

The Other Palace production of Falsettos is produced by Selladaor Productions, who are behind such popular shows as Dolly Parton's 9 to 5 The Musical, Avenue Q, Big Fish, and American Idiot.

Casting for the London premiere of Falsettos will be announced in due course.
