Christian Borle will now join his previously announced castmates for an event celebrating the cast album of Lincoln Center Theater's recent Broadway revival of Falsettos. The event is slated for January 27, the day of the album's worldwide digital release, with physical copies also available as a two-disc set available online and in stores. The event will take place at Barnes & Noble (150 East 86th Street).

In addition to Borle, Barnes & Noble will welcome cast members Stephanie J. Block, Anthony Rosenthal, Tracie Thoms, Brandon Uranowitz, and Betsy Wolfe, as well as the show's composer and lyricist William Finn as special guest. The celebration will include an in-store performance as well as a CD signing. Fans who purchase the CD at the store will be offered priority seating.

The new Falsettos recording is first-ever full cast album of the musical, which combines the one-act musicals March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland. The Ghostlight Records album includes a 60-page full-color booklet with complete lyrics, production photos, and an essay from Lincoln Center Theater's producing artistic director André Bishop and musical-theater associate producer Ira Weitzman. The cast album was produced by Kurt Deutsch with Lawrence Manchester serving as coproducer.

Falsettos played a limited run at the Walter Kerr Theatre from September 29, 2016-January 8, 2017. The story follows the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin (Christian Borle), his wife (Stephanie J. Block), lover (Andrew Rannells), about-to-be-bar-mitzvahed son (Anthony Rosenthal), their psychiatrist (Brandon Uranowitz), and the lesbians next door (Tracie Thoms and Betsy Wolfe).
