  Falsettos at The Kennedy Center


The Kennedy Center
2700 F Street, NW Washington

Fresh off its Tony-nominated Broadway revival, Falsettos arrives at the Kennedy Center in DC as "an exceptional production of a perfect musical" (The New York Times). The story revolves around a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, his lover, his about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. At times both hilarious and achingly poignant, Falsettos shines an ahead-of-its-time spotlight on the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family ... and a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories. A hit when it premiered on Broadway in 1992, this ever-relevant show won Tony Awards for its book by James Lapine and William Finn (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) and its score, also by Finn.

Talkin Broadway - Highly Recommended

"...William Finn (music, lyrics, co-bookwriter) and James Lapine (co-bookwriter) created something remarkable in Falsettos: a small-scale musical that seems to begin as a broad comedy, ends up as a tragedy that earns its tears, and never loses an audience's attention or empathy. Lapine also directed the touring production now in the Eisenhower Theatre at the Kennedy Center in Washington, based on his 2016 Broadway revival production."

DC Metro Theater Arts - Highly Recommended

"...The motley crew of neurotic and quasi-neurotic characters in Falsettos, now playing at the Kennedy Center, offers an eye-opening look at all-too-human dilemmas. The rituals of everyday life under stress are scrutinized with laser-sharp wit and bracing lyrics courtesy of Composer and Lyricist William Finn."

MD Theatre Guide - Highly Recommended

"...Superb performances abound in this production. Trina (Espinoza), having reached the absolute end of her rope, delivers a hilarious rendition of "I'm Breaking Down," and Jason (Mussolino) demonstrates acting and vocal abilities well beyond his years in "Miracle of Judaism." Marvin and Whizzer sing the final duet, "What Would I Do?" with remarkable emotional intensity. "
