Falsettos is a Tony Award-winning musical with music and lyrics by William Finn (and also a book by Finn and James Lapine) that follows the story of Marvin, his ex-wife Trina, his psychiatrist Mendel, his son Jason, his gay lover Whizzer Brown, and his neighbors Cordelia and Dr. Charlotte. The musical (which is actually two musicals, “March of the Falsettos” and “Falsettoland,” the last two installments in one trio of one-act Off-Broadway musicals, beginning with “In Trousers”) premiered on Broadway in 1992 and won two Tony Awards. It was nominated for five more Tony Awards when it was revived on Broadway in 2016.
The Liberty Theatre in downtown Camas is showing this Tony-nominated revival, which was captured live from the Walter Kerr Theater in Lincoln Center and formatted for the cinema, at 12:55 p.m. on Sunday, July 16. Tickets are $15 for adults or $12 for students and seniors. The Liberty Theatre is located at 315 N.E. 4th Ave. in downtown Camas. Popcorn, ice cream, candy, craft beer, fine wine, and other goodies are available in the lobby to enjoy while you watch the musical.
