Falsettos Revival to Receive Complete Cast Album
The iconic musical will be recorded in full for a two-disc set from Ghostlight Records.
The new Broadway revival of William Finn and James Lapine's musical Falsettos will receive a double-disc cast recording later this season from Ghostlight Records. The set will mark the first time that the show has been recorded in its entirety. Presented by Lincoln Center Theater in association with Jujamcyn Theatres, Falsettos opens at the Walter Kerr Theatre on October 27.
The company is led by Tony nominee Stephanie J. Block (Trina), two-time Tony winner Christian Borle (Marvin), and Tony nominee Andrew Rannells (Whizzer), alongside Anthony Rosenthal (A Christmas Story) as Jason, Tracie Thoms (Rent) as Dr. Charlotte, Tony nominee Brandon Uranowitz (An American in Paris) as Mendel, and Betsy Wolfe (Bullets Over Broadway) as Cordelia.
Falsettos premiered on Broadway in 1992 and won Tony Awards for Best Score for William Finn and Best Book of a Musical for James Lapine and Finn. The show consists of two separate musicals, March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland, the last two in a trilogy of one-act off-Broadway plays, which premiered at Playwrights Horizons, then led by current Lincoln Center Theater artistic director André Bishop. It follows the lives of five people: Marvin, his ex-wife Trina, his psychiatrist Mendel, his son Jason, and his lover Whizzer.
The production will have choreography by Spencer Liff, sets by David Rockwell, costumes by Jennifer Caprio, lighting by Jeff Croiter, sound by Dan Moses Schreier, and musical direction by Vadim Feichtner, conducting Michael Starobin's original orchestrations.
James Lapine directs the revival, as he did the original production. Opening night is set for October 27.
