About the show

Double Tony Award-winner Falsettos is set to be your new favourite musical. Charmingly comical but profoundly poignant too, this exploration of family dynamics against the backdrop of the AIDS crisis is a disarming reminder of the power of love. See it at The Other Palace from 30 August 2019.

Selladoor Productions (9 to 5 the Musical, Avenue Q) presents the show, which premiered on Broadway in 1992. It was nominated for seven Tony Awards, going on to win Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.

This is the tale of a modern family, headed up by Marvin. He’s a gay man with a wife, a lover and a son who is about to have his bar mitzvah. His social circle also includes their psychiatrist and the lesbian neighbours. Marvin’s life plays out amongst the daily, love-laden mess of the family home, moving ever closer to a heart-rending conclusion.

Daniel Boys (Avenue Q, Spamalot) stars as Marvin, alongside Joel Montague (School of Rock) as Mendel. The cast is rounded out by Natasha J Barnes as Cordelia, Gemma Knight-Jones as Charlotte, Laura Pitt-Pulford as Trina, and Oliver Savile as Whizzer.

The show has a book by William Finn and James Lapine; music and lyrics are the work of Finn. The pair share a recent stage credit in Little Miss Sunshine.

See the stirring and hilarious musical Falsettos when it runs at The Other Palace from 30 August 2019.
