Produced in association with Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company.
Set against the backdrop of the sexual-revolution and the emergence of AIDS, Falsettos tells the story of Marvin, a married father who—in 1979—leaves his wife and son for another man. A Tony and Drama Desk award-winning musical, Falsettos breathtakingly depicts the birth of a non-traditional family amidst a time of astonishing change.
