Three of Broadway’s best will headline the new production of William Flinn and James Lapine’s “Falsettos,” which begins performances on Sept. 29 prior to an Oct. 27 opening at Lincoln Center’s Walter Kerr Theatre.
Two-time Tony winner Christian Borle (“”Peter and the Starcatcher,” “Something Rotten”), Tony nominee Andrew Rannells (“Hamilton,” TV’s “Girls”) and Tony nominee Stephanie J. Block (“The Mystery of Edwin Drood”) will lead the revival cast. Additional casting is expected to be announced soon.
Borle, who also starred on NBC’s “Smash,” will play Marvin, a gay man juggling relationships between his lover Whizzer (Rannels) and his wife Trina (Block). The story takes place in New York in the 1980s, examining the early years of the AIDS crisis.
The book comes from Finn (“A New Brain”) and Lapine (“Act One”), who combined their two Off-Broadway musicals “March of the Falsettos” and “Falsettoland” to build the piece. Finn provides the score.
Lapine, who directed the 1992 original Broadway production, will once again direct for Broadway.
