Falsettos Star Andrew Rannells to Cohost NBC's Today
Rannells will join Hoda Kotb for a morning chat on live television.
If you're going through Girls withdrawal and miss seeing Tony nominee Andrew Rannells on the tube, tune in to Today tomorrow morning on NBC. The Falsettos star will be filling in for Kathie Lee as a cohost with Hoda Kotb for the 10am (ET) hour. The guests set to appear are include Sela Ward, Thandie Newton, and recent Broadway veteran Sting (The Last Ship).
Rannells currently stars as Whizzer in the Lincoln Center revival of Falsettos, directed by James Lapine, at the Walter Kerr Theatre. He performs alongside two-time Tony winner Christian Borle, Betsy Wolfe, Stephanie J. Block, Tracie Thoms, Brandon Uranowitz, and Anthony Rosenthal.
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 that 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.
