Two-time Tony Award winner Christian Borle stars in Lincoln Center Theater's Broadway revival of William Finn's groundbreaking musical about a gay man, his wife, his son, his lover, and their psychiatrist. More…
Set in 1979-1981, 'Falsettos' focuses on Marvin (Borle), who struggles to create a nontraditional family out of an eclectic array of core relationships, including his ex-wife (Tony nominee Stephanie J. Block), his new boyfriend (Tony nominee Andrew Rannells), his adolescent son, and his psychiatrist. Amidst a series of monumental life changes, he is forced to reckon with his own views on love, responsibility, and what it means to be a man. This production reunites the original creative team of producer André Bishop, Tony-winning composer/lyricist William Finn, and Tony-winning playwright/director James Lapine.

See it if uh well it's too late to see it but the staging was really wonderful and the actors did well with this very strange and weirdly paced show

See it if You already love the material. Or to see Stephanie Block's incredible performance of "I'm Breaking Down."
