Commentaires :
Originally part of a series of off-Broadway shows - In Trousers (1985), March of the Falsettos (1981) and Falsettoland (1990) - the works would later be amalgamated into an on-Broadway production “Falsettos” (1992) and would win a Tony Award for the book and score. This London production of the middle show was first staged at the Manchester Library Theatre in January 1986 and was originally planned and directed by Howard Lloyd-Lewis, the dynamic and rising artistic director at Manchester Library, who sadly died at the age of 42 from a heart attack as rehearsals began. The London audiences dismissed this virtually sung-through show as an “over-rated Broadway cult”, while New Yorkers considered it to be a masterly story of gay life in modern
times.

Commentaires :
Revered musical Falsettos returns to Broadway in 2016 for the first time in 23 years. Helming this revival is the original co-writer and director James Lapine, who has three Tonys to his name and helmed the 2012 revival of Annie. Tony winner Christian Borle (Something Rotten!) stars as Marvin, with Andrew Rannells (Book of Mormon) as Whizzer and Stephanie J. Block (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) as Trina!

First performed on The Great White Way in 1992, Falsettos made for a thoroughly subversive Broadway show, exploring the all-too-recent AIDS crisis in the form of a wholesome song and dance musical. It was nominated for seven Tonys, taking home two awards for Best Book of a Musical and Best Score, and remains a landmark of gay theater to this day.
