This production was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival when it returned to Broadway in Fall 2016. The North American Tour of the Lincoln Center Theater Broadway production of "Falsettos" is directed once again by James Lapine. The production has choreography by Spencer Liff (Emmy Award nominee for FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance"), sets by David Rockwell ("Hairspray," "The Normal Heart," "She Loves Me"), costumes by Jennifer Caprio ("The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," "Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat"), lighting by Jeff Croiter ("Bandstand," "Something Rotten!"), sound by Dan Moses Schreier ("A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder," "Gypsy" with Patti LuPone), casting by Eric Woodall / Tara Rubin Casting, music supervision by Vadim Feichtner and features Michael Starobin's("Assassins," "Next to Normal") original orchestrations.
"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.
