Falsettos is a story of love in the face of modern conflicts. The story takes place between 1979 and 1981 and follows Marvin, who has left his wife Trina and son Jason for a male lover, Whizzer, but still wants them all to be one big happy family. Life gets more complicated when Trina falls for Marvin’s psychiatrist, Mendel while Jason is about to be Bar Mitzvah-ed and the lesbians next door, Cordelia and Dr. Charlotte, are doing the catering! As if that’s not complicated enough, Whizzer and Marvin break up and then are reunited, only to find that Whizzer is dying of some new unexplained disease.
Winner of the 1992 Tony Award for Best Score and Best Book for a Musical, Falsettos a powerful piece for both its ability to capture an important moment in history and in its depiction of very real and human characters faced with significant adversity. Despite dealing with the outbreak of the AIDS epidemic, Falsettos is primarily about experiencing life and love; a joyous story of the struggle between values, love and forgiveness. William Finn touches on the joy and happiness of every family by depicting one very different family.
