    ‘Falsettos,’ a Perfect Musical, an Imperfect Family

    Charles Isherwood

    October 27, 2016: There’s hardly a moment in the exhilarating, devastating revival of the musical “Falsettos” that doesn’t approach, or even achieve, perfection. This singular show, about an unorthodox family grappling with the complexities of, well, just being a family — unorthodox or otherwise — has been restored to life, some 25 years after it was first produced, with such vitality that it feels as fresh and startling as it did back in 1992.

    Andrew Rannells And Christian Borle Are Tender, If Unlikely, Lovers In ‘Falsettos’ Revival

    Jeremy Gerard

    October 27, 2016: You undoubtedly know their names and faces: Andrew Rannells plays Lena Dunham’s’ gay confidante Elijah in HBO’s Girls. Christian Borle played the depressive composer Tom Levitt on NBC’s Smash. But they’re creatures of the theater: Rannells was Tony-nominated for his breakout performance as Elder Price in The Book Of Mormon; Borle recently vamped as a preening sequined Shakespeare in Something Rotten!, for which he won the second of his two Tony Awards. Good. Now you know their bona fides. They are the real thing, they have bedroom eyes. and together they inject the Broadway revival of Falsettos with all the depth of feeling you would expect from one of the sweet-sad-funniest Broadway musicals of the last quarter-century (just barely; Falsettos opened at the John Golden Theatre in April 1992).

    Christian Borle shines in fantastic revival

    Matt Windham

    October 27, 2016: Farcical comedy and heartbreaking drama are served in equal measure in the triumphant Broadway revival of William Finn’s unconventional, uncompromising and intimate family musical “Falsettos,” which is directed by James Lapine, who wrote the show’s book and also staged the original 1992 production.

    William Finn and James Lapine’s game-changing musical Falsettos returns to break new hearts

    Adam Feldman

    October 27, 2016: “It’s about time, don’t you think?” sings Marvin (Christian Borle) at the outset of the second act of Falsettos, and yes: It is. It’s about time that William Finn and James Lapine’s intimate, obstinate, heart-shattering 1992 musical has returned to Broadway, to poke us and amuse us and reduce us again to helpless tears. Few musicals have the range, idiosyncrasy and emotional punch of this profoundly unconventional and personal work. Directed by Lapine, the show’s revival is very much about a specific Jewish family in the early 1980s, and while its story of a man who leaves his wife and child for a male lover may be less novel today, its larger truths continue to resonate. Seeing Falsettos now is like opening a time capsule and finding a mirror.

  • NEWSDAY REVIEW OF Falsettos

    Revival still passionate, powerful and funny, too

    Linda Winer

    October 27, 2016: Almost a quarter of an eventful century has roiled the country since “Falsettos” broke ground as Broadway’s first — and, in my experience, still the only — musical tragicomedy about AIDS. The show remains brave and hilarious, a charming and deeply moving treasure. Make that two shows, created in 1981 and 1990 as separate one-acts by director/co-author James Lapine and composer/lyricist/co-author William Finn, then melded into one evening.
