Finn Fridays – American Theatre Wing Presents

As we wind down our production of Falsettos, take a trip with us through William Finn’s Songbook every Friday.


As we bid a fond adieu to Falsettos this weekend, and start looking forward to our 10th Year Anniversary Season, we’d love for you to watch this very special American Theatre Wing special with guests William Finn, and Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, composers of Once On This Island!

If you only have a couple a minutes to spare, here’s an edited version of the composers themselves performing “Your Daddy’s Son” and “(I’d Rather Be) Sailing”

And if you’ve got an hour to spare, here’s the whole interview, including the formidable Adam Guettel (who wrote The Light in the Piazza)


Finn Fridays – “I’m Breaking Down”

As we get into high gear for our upcoming production of Falsettos, take a trip with us through William Finn’s Songbook every Friday.


Tony Award-winning composer and lyricist William Finn will be attending the Acting Up Stage Company production of Falsettos – the first major revival of the show in Toronto in 18 years. Toronto Star theatre critic Richard Ouzounian will also host In Conversation with William Finn immediately following the Friday, April 26th performance. 

Admission to the post show talkback is included with all tickets purchased for that performance.

And, while we’re at it, here’s the original Trina, Barbara Walsh, singing “I’m Breaking Down” 

 


Finn Fridays – Falsettos at the Tonys

As we get into high gear for our upcoming production of Falsettos, take a trip with us through William Finn’s Songbook every Friday. 


In this week’s Finn Friday Tuesday,  we’d love for you to take a look at the original Falsettos cast at the 1992 Tonys… and then come see our entirely different production starting one week from today (which doesn’t shy away from using the word homosexual or lesbian)!

 


Finn Fridays – What More Can I Say?

As we get into high gear for our upcoming production of Falsettos, take a trip with us through William Finn’s Songbook every Friday. 


After the Tony Winning 1992 Broadway production, Falsettos was produced in LA with mostly the original cast. Here’s a clip of Michael Rupert and Stephen Bogardus from that production. (We think Michael doesn’t hold a candle to our very own Stephen Patterson!)


Finn Fridays – Interview with William Finn!

As we get into high gear for our upcoming production of Falsettos, take a trip with us through William Finn’s Songbook every Friday. 


Ok, it’s a Thursday… but we just couldn’t wait to share our interview with William Finn with you. So sit back, relax and watch as Robert McQueen, the director of Falsettos, interviews the legend himself. More
