William Finn and James Lapine's groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical FALSETTOS (Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score) recently returned to Broadway in an all-new production from Lincoln Center Theater. Lapine returned to direct an extraordinary cast featuring Stephanie J. Block (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Tony nom.), Christian Borle (Something Rotten!,? Tony Award), Andrew Rannells (The Book of Mormon, Tony nom.?)?, ?Anthony Rosenthal, Tracie Thoms?, Brandon Uranowitz (An American in Paris, Tony nom.) and Betsy Wolfe.?

FALSETTOS revolves around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, lover, about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. It's a hilarious and achingly poignant look at the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family... and a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories.

"Growing up with FALSETTOS was a Game Changer musical for me. With its gorgeous score and trailblazing takes on love, life and crisis, FALSETTOS is one of our great musicals and we're honored to preserve the new Broadway cast album on Ghostlight Records," says the label's founder Kurt Deutsch. "Having released Finn's wonderful 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, we're thrilled to add this recording to our catalog, especially featuring such an unbelievable cast breathing such magnificent life into this 'tight-knit family.'"

FALSETTOS was directed by James Lapine, with choreography by Spencer Liff, sets by David Rockwell, costumes by Jennifer Caprio, lighting by Jeff Croiter, sound by Dan Moses Schreier, and musical direction by Vadim Feichtner, conducting Michael Starobin's original orchestrations.
