Falsettos: the plot
Consisting of two acts – "March of the Falsettos" and "Falsettoland" – the musical Falsettos tells the story of Marvin and his young son, Jason, who has just turned ten years old. Set in 1979 in New York City, Marvin has left his wife Trina and come out as gay, coming clean about his relationship with Whizzer, his boyfriend, to his family. With the help of Mendel, his son’s psychiatrist, Marvin, Trina and Jason are trying to figure out this new family set-up. Trina is trying to make sense of the new world in which her ex-husband is now openly gay, and Marvin is wondering about the strength and commitment of his new relationship. Separated but still co-parenting, both Trina and Marvin now have to deal with these emotions as well as consider how their young son will react to these changes. Falsettos is about the characters’ attempts to come to terms with their new reality and the struggle to accept the loss of their old lives as well. Watch them as they navigate uncharted territory together when you purchase your Falsettos tickets on StubHub.
