Additional casting has been announced for the upcoming Broadway revival of Falsettos, beginning performances September 29 at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

The cast will now feature 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. They join previously announced Tony nominee Stephanie J. Block (Trina), two-time Tony winner Christian Borle (Marvin), and Tony nominee Andrew Rannells (Whizzer).

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 with 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 will direct the revival, as he did the original production. Opening night is set for October 27.
