Falsettos to Receive Special Screening From the Actors Fund
The 2016 Broadway revival will be screened at the Jacob Burns Film Center, followed by a Q&A with James Lapine and Christian Borle.
The Actors Fund, in partnership with the Jacob Burns Film Center's series Life on Stage, has announced a special screening of the five-time Tony Award-nominated musical Falsettos, captured live from Lincoln Center during its 2016 revival. The screening will be held on Sunday, October 28 at 6pm at the Jacob Burns Film Center. Director James Lapine and star Christian Borle will participate in a post-film Q&A.
Directed by Lapine, who cowrote the book with William Finn (the show's composer and lyricist), the production starred two-time Tony winner Borle, two-time Tony nominee Andrew Rannells, two-time Tony nominee Stephanie J. Block, and two-time Tony Award nominee Brandon Uranowitz, along with Anthony Rosenthal, Tracie Thoms, and Betsy Wolfe.
Falsettos tells the story of a gay man, his wife, lover, about-to-be-bar-mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbian couple next door in a profoundly funny and poignant look at what makes a modern family. The post-film Q&A with Lapine and Borle will be moderated by four-time Tony Award-winning producer and Jacob Burns Film Center board member Dori Berinstein.
