Sarasota, FL – Oct. 25, 2021 – The Players Centre for Performing Arts is thrilled to present the second show in our 92nd season, Falsettos, with book by William Finn and James Lapine and music and lyrics by William Finn Nov. 3 through 14 at the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium (801 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34236).
This two-act musical is in fact a synthesis of a trilogy of one acts: In Trousers, March of the Falsettos, and Falsettoland.
Special thanks to media sponsor the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee.
Falsettos is the story of a large, eccentric, and dysfunctional -- but loving -- Jewish family in New York at the end of the 1970s.
Initially, Marvin seems blessed with the perfect family. He has a caring wife, Trina and a young son, Jason. Nevertheless, the family is soon broken apart, when the homosexual Marvin leaves Trina for his male friend, Whizzer.
Trina, meanwhile, ends up romantically involved with the family psychiatrist, Mendel. All the while, their son, Jason, is stuck in the middle. Included in the mix are lesbian neighbors Dr. Charlotte and Cordelia. When Marvin's lover, Whizzer, is diagnosed with AIDS, the entire family -- non-traditional as it may be -- must put aside their issues and come together.
