Falsettos | Darlinghurst Theatre Company
  • Darlinghurst Theatre Company presents

  • $30 - $43


Music & Lyrics by William Finn

Marvin has left his wife and son for a male lover. Meanwhile, Trina has shacked up with Marvin’s shrink. Amongst this there’s also a Bar Mitzvah to organise. Is it too much to ask for everyone to get along?



Stephen Colyer (Torch Song Trilogy, The Paris Letter) directs this Tony Award-winning musical about the original modern family. Wickedly funny lyrics accompany a live piano score in this quirky yet tender tale about family, growing up and what it means to be a man.

Falsettos is presented in association with Mardi Gras 2014.

“…Falsettos will be a highlight of Mardi Gras and, when we look back, probably of the year’s music theatre” Sun-Herald, 16 Feb 2014

 “With these seven fine voices on the one stage, it’s a balanced, textured and warm sonic experience” Crikey, 18 Feb 2014

"From the opening number (a rattling good Four Jews in a Room Bitching), this production…lacks for nothing in colour and movement" Sydney Morning Herald, 14 Feb 2014

“This production is un-amplified – what you hear and what the singers have is what you get. The result is warm, engaging and special” Stage Noise 12 Feb 2014

It’s a moving, funny, multi-layered piece of musical theatre" Aussie Theatre, 13 Feb 2014

“The show [Director Stephen Colyer] has created is artistically inventive and technically accomplished. It is also highly entertaining, thought provoking and full of humanity. This is the musical format thoroughly evolved” Suzy Goes See, 12 Feb 2014
