Falsettos tells the jaunty tale of a not-so-average family. Marvin, a gay Jewish man, leaves his wife and son for another man. Life becomes nothing short of dysfunctional as he simultaneously strives to keep his "tight-knit family" under one roof. Marriages are had, bar mitzvahs are planned and things get messy, but at the end of the day this poignant musical comedy reminds us that family, born or forged, is family.
Falsettos will run February 4-6 and 11-13 with all performances at 7:30pm at the Empire Arts Center. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and military. Falsettos is sponsored by Manstrom Photography. Donations for Broadway Cares will be collected following each performance.
Falsettos features: Darin Kerr as Marvin, Mackenzie Teepen as Trina, Timmy Hennessy as Jason, Michael Marcotte as Whizzer, Cody Gerszewski as Mendel, Emily Johnson as Dr. Charlotte and Abbey Immer as Cordelia. This production is directed by Chris Berg, with musical direction by David Henrickson.
