Mainstage Season Features “Falsettos”November 8, 2017
As part of the 2017-18 mainstage season, the Truman Theatre Department presented “Falsettos” Nov. 8-11.
“Falsettos” is the hilarious and touching story of Marvin, a New York yuppie who leaves his wife, Trina, for another man. Trina marries her psychiatrist while everyone struggles to understand Marvin’s and Trina’s unusual son Jason. Despite the unorthodox situation, Marvin still strives to maintain a “tight-knit family” but finds that perfection he wants is fleeting. “Falsettos” is filled with laughter and drama with Marvin struggling through love and loss.
The work of playwrights James Lapine and William Finn, Truman’s production of “Falsettos” was under the direction of David Charles Goyette, assistant professor of theatre.
