Initial casting has been announced for the UK premiere of William Finn and James Lapine’s musical Falsettos, which is set to run at The Other Palace from August. Winner of two Tony Awards, Falsettos tells the story of a gay man called Marvin, his wife, his lover, his son, their psychiatrist and their lesbian neighbours. The cast includes: Natasha J Barnes (Cordelia), Daniel Boys (Marvin), Matt Cardle (Mendel), Gemma Knight-Jones (Charlotte), Laura Pitt-Pulford (Trina) and Oliver Savile (Whizzer).
Falsettos will receive its European premiere at The Other Palace in August 2019.
The double Tony Award winning Falsettos is a hilarious and poignant look at a modern family revolving around the life of a gay man Marvin, his wife, his lover, his soon to be bar mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians neighbours.
Originally created under the spectre of the AIDS crisis, this ground-breaking musical about family dynamics manages to remain buoyant and satirically perceptive even as it moves towards its heartbreaking conclusion.
Selladoor Productions, producers of 9 to 5 The Musical, Big Fish, American Idiot and Avenue Q, bring Falsettos to London for the very first time serving as a timely reminder that love really is the most beautiful thing in the world.
