WILLIAM FINN & JAMES LAPINE’S
LANDMARK, MULTI-TONY AWARD® WINNING MUSICAL
“ F A L S E T T O S ”
WILL NOW MAKE ITS RETURN TO BROADWAY
IN THE 2016/2017 SEASON
LAPINE TO DIRECT
New York, NY – Producer Jordan Roth, President of Jujamcyn Theaters, announced today that William Finn and James Lapine’s landmark musical, Falsettos, will now make its return to Broadway during the 2016/2017 theater season with an all new production directed by Mr. Lapine.
Falsettos premiered on Broadway in 1992 – after its characters first captured the hearts of theatergoers Off Broadway – garnering rave reviews and seven Tony Award® nominations, including Best Musical, and going onto win for Best Original Score (Finn) and Best Book of a Musical (Lapine and Finn).
Part intimate family drama, part neurotic urban comedy, and part keenly observed meditation on a shifting definition of the American family, Falsettos remains every bit as “exhilarating and heartbreaking” (Frank Rich, New York Times) as it was when it first premiered. As Marvin struggles to create a “tight knit family” out of his eclectic array of core relationships (including his ex-wife, his new boyfriend, his adolescent son, his psychiatrist, and his neighbors) amidst a series of monumental life changes, he is forced to reckon with his own views on love, responsibility, and what it means to be a man.
