Playing at The Other Palace from 30 August to 23 November, the multi-award winning musical Falsettos gets its long awaited European premier, presented by Selladoor Worldwide.
The musical has music and lyrics by William Finn, with the book by William Finn and James Lapine.
Press night is scheduled for Thursday 5 September, with casting and the creative team to be announced.
The double Tony Award-winning Falsettos (originally created under the spectre of the AIDS crisis) is a hilarious and poignant look at modern family dynamics that manages to remain buoyant and satirically perceptive even as it moves towards its heartbreaking conclusion.
David Hutchinson, Selladoor Worldwide CEO, said ...
"This is a show we have wanted to bring to London since we embarked on our careers as producers.
We've been exploring and planning this one for nearly a decade, and I am delighted that today we can tell the world that this beautiful, critically acclaimed musical - is finally coming to the capital."
Priority booking for the show opens on 26 April, with general on-sale from 6 May 2019.
The double Tony Award winning Falsettos is a hilarious and poignant look at a modern family revolving around the life of a gay man Marvin, his wife, his lover, his soon to be bar mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians neighbours.
Originally created under the spectre of the AIDS crisis, this ground-breaking musical about family dynamics manages to remain buoyant and satirically perceptive even as it moves towards its heartbreaking conclusion.
Selladoor Productions, producers of 9 to 5 The Musical, Big Fish, American Idiot and Avenue Q, bring Falsettos to London for the very first time serving as a timely reminder that love really is the most beautiful thing in the world.
