The award-winning Selladoor Worldwide production of Falsettos will open in London this summer.
The highly anticipated show, from the producers of 9 to 5, Big Fish, American Idiot and Avenue Q will open at The Other Palace in Westminster on 30th August where it will run until 23rd November.
The casting for the musical by William Finn (music and lyrics) and James Lapine (book) will be announced in due course.
General ticket sales for the show will open on 6th May.
David Hutchinson, CEO of Selladoor Worldwide, commented: “This is a show we have wanted to bring to London since we embarked on our careers as producers. We’ve been exploring and planning this one for nearly a decade, and I am delighted that today we can tell the world that this beautiful, critically-acclaimed musical is finally coming to the capital.”
The musical follows a modern family revolving around the life of a gay man Marvin, his wife, his lover, his soon to be bar mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbian neighbours.
Originally written amid the AIDS crisis during the early 1990s, this musical about family dynamics remains buoyant and satirically perceptive even as it moves towards its heartbreaking conclusion.
William Finn is the writer and composer of Falsettos, for which he has received two Tony Awards, Best Book of a Musical (with James Lapine) and Best Original Score. He has also written and composed In Trousers, March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland.
James Lapine has also written the book for, and directed, Stephen Sondheim’s Sunday In The Park With George, Into The Woods and Passion, as well as the recent Broadway show, Sondheim On Sondheim. He also directed the first revival of Merrily We Roll Along at LaJolla Playhouse in 1985
