Ghostlight Records will celebrate the cast album of Lincoln Center Theater's recent Broadway revival of William Finn and James Lapine’s Falsettos at Barnes & Noble (150 East 86th Street) on Friday, January 27, at 7pm. The event is slated for the day of the album’s worldwide digital release, with physical copies also available a a two-disc set available online and in stores.

Barnes & Noble will welcome cast members Stephanie J. Block, Anthony Rosenthal, Tracie Thoms, Brandon Uranowitz, and Betsy Wolfe, in addition to 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 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 ran 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).
