William Finn and James Lapine’s musical will play at the theatre from the 30th August until the 23rd November.
Selladoor Worldwide (9 to 5, Big Fish, American Idiot and Avenue Q) are set to present the European premiere of the multi award-winning musical, Falsettos, which arrives in the UK from the 30th August 2019.
The musical features music, lyrics and book by William Finn and book by James Lapine. Cast and creative team for the production is set to be announced in due course.
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.
William Finn is the writer and composer of Falsettos, for which he received two Tony Awards, Best Book of a Musical (with James Lapine) and Best Original Score. He has also written and composed In Trousers, March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland (Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, two Los Angeles Drama Critic’s Awards, two Drama Desk Awards, the Lucille Lortel Award, and Guggenheim Fellowship in Musical Composition).
James Lapine has written the book for and directed Stephen Sondheim’s Sunday In The Park With George, Into The Woods andPassion, as well as the recent Broadway show, Sondheim On Sondheim. He also directed the first revival of Merrily We Roll Along at LaJolla Playhouse in 1985.
