Opening its National Tour at Walton Arts Center, Falsettos is a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories.
Revolving around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, lover, about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist and the lesbians next door, Falsettos is a hilarious and achingly poignant look at the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family.
Bringing the story to the stage is an all-star and multi-award winning cast and creative team!
