Ahead of the European premiere of Falsettos we popped into rehearsals with Gemma Knight Jones and Natasha J Barnes, who play the "lesbians next door" Charlotte and Cordelia in William Finn and James Lapine's musical, about the show. The show paints a picture of family life in 1980s New York, bringing together a plethora of characters, focussing on gay man Marvin, his wife, his lover, his soon to be bar mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbian neighbours. Quite the modern family.
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.
