Falsettos musical gets European premiere at London's The Other Palace

Falsettos, The Other Palace

The critically-acclaimed musical makes its European debut at London's Off-West End Other Palace theatre

Having premiered on Broadway in 1992, the Tony Award-winning musical Falsettos – which tackles the complexities of shifting family dynamics against the backdrop of the AIDS crisis – is finally making its long-awaited European debut this year in London.

Due to run at Westminster's The Other Palace from 30 August – 23 November, Falsettos is a musical anthology of sorts, written by William Finn and James Lapine, comprised of two one-act musicals. The show won Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score at the 1992 Tony Awards, already completed a successful Broadway revival in 2016 (featuring GIRLS star and The Book of Mormon lead Andrew Rannells), and is currently on its second U.S. tour after the initial 1993 run.

Brought to the U.K. by Production company Selladoor – which is currently working on the UK tour of Green Day's American Idiot The Musical among several other shows – the Other Palace run marks for the first time in Falsettos' 27-year history that the show will be staged outside of the United States or Australia. 

Further details of Falsettos at London's The Other Palace, including casting, are due to be revealed soon, with tickets set to go on sale May 6. You can sign up to receive early information via the production's official website.
