A filmed version of the recent Broadway revival of Falsettos will screen in movie theaters nationwide next month, according to an announcement made during the Tony Awards.
Screenvision Media, in alliance with KAOS Connect and Live From Lincoln Center, will present the Tony-nominated production in a limited engagement beginning July 12. The production was taped in January at New York City’s Walter Kerr Theatre.
Written by William Finn and James Lapine, the 1992 musical is set at the dawn of the AIDS epidemic and centers on a neurotic man-child who creates a nontraditional family with his ex-wife, new boyfriend, adolescent son, psychiatrist, and lesbian neighbors. The Advocate called it “once innovative and now imperative.”
The 2016 Falsettos production was nominated for five Tonys, including Best Revival of a Musical. Its four leads—Christian Borle, Andrew Rannells, Brandon Uranowitz, and Stephanie J. Block—were also nominated.
“Groundbreaking in its time, and just as relevant and resonant today, Falsettos has it all—an extraordinary cast, a story that is both funny and touching, and a spectacular score,” said Andrew C. Wilk, Live From Lincoln Center’s executive director. “Those who have never experienced Falsettos are in for a treat, and those who have seen it on stage will rediscover it through our camera’s lens.”
