Darlinghurst Theatre Company will begin their 2014 season at the Eternity Playhouse with the Tony Award winning musical drama “Falsettos”, opening on 11 February and previews from 7 February.

Presented in association with the 2014 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, “Falsettos” is a quirky yet tender tale about a family, growing up and what it means to be a man. Marvin has left his wife and son for a male lover. Meanwhile, his ex-wife Trina ends up with the family psychiatrist. Amongst this there’s a Bar Mitzvah to organise. Wickedly funny lyrics accompany a live piano score in this touching musical about the original modern family.

Directed by renowned theatre director Stephen Colyer, who has assembled a dream cast including Tamlyn Henderson, Katrina Retallick, Stephen Anderson, Ben Hall, Margi de Ferranti, Elise McCann, Anthony Garcia and Isaac Shaw. Stephen commented “Each of them has been firmly established as a versatile, dynamic star of the Australian stage capable of the unique blend of pathos and comedy that “Falsettos” demands”.

With music and lyrics by William Finn and book by Finn & James Lapine, “Falsettos” premiered on Broadway in 1992.
