Savor this Tony-nominated musical drama about a modern family set amidst the emerging AIDS crisis.

Nominated for five 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, “Falsettos” is a hilarious and poignant look at middle-class family dynamics revolving around the life of a gay man, his wife, his lover, his soon‑to‑be‑bar‑mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door.

Falsettos - Preview

Nominated for five 2017 Tony® Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, this razor-sharp portrait of family dynamics revolves around the life of a gay man, his wife, his lover, his disaffected son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. Starring Christian Borle, Stephanie J. Block and Andrew Rannells, Falsettos offers a hilarious, ultimately heartbreaking look at a turbulent time.

With its razor-sharp portrait of a “modern family” in the making, this timely musical manages to remain buoyant and satirically perceptive even as it moves towards its heartbreaking conclusion.
