Front Porch opens their 2023 season with the hilarious, heartbreaking and genuinely unique, Falsettos, a contemporary musical about family built around relationships, bar mitvahs, baseball and AIDS.
The Tony-award winning Falsettos is from William Finn and James Lapine who were the team behind the successful 2018 FPT production of A New Brain.
Snapshot: Marvin is a neurotic New Yorker, who leaves his wife Trina and young son Jason to live with his lover, Whizzer. In time, Trina marries Mendel, Marvin’s psychiatrist and, Whizzer leaves Marvin, who ends up alone.
Two years later, Marvin and Whizzer reunite on the eve of Jason’s bar mitzvah, just as AIDS is beginning its insidious spread. With the help of their neighbors, Marvin and his entire family learn to grow up and face their future with love and dignity.
The show takes a poignant look at the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family.
