Falsettos Announces North American Tour of Lincoln Center Production
The tour of William Finn and James Lapine's musical will launch in winter 2019.
The Lincoln Center Theater Broadway production of Falsettos will launch a North American tour in 2019, playing full-week and multi-week engagements at San Francisco's SHN Golden Gate Theatre (March 19-April 14, 2019); Los Angeles's Ahmanson Theatre (April 16-May 19, 2019); St. Paul, Minnesota; Dallas; Charlotte, North Carolina; and more cities to be announced in the coming weeks.
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 has 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.
