Falsettos musical synopsis
A gay Jewish man named Marvin has left his wife Trina for his boyfriend Whizzer Brown. Exploring the interrelationships of the modern family and following the side-stories of Marvin’s son Jason, who is soon to celebrate his bar mitzvah, his lesbian neighbours Cordelia and Dr. Charlotte, as well as Marvin’s psychiatrist, Mendel, Falsettos is a hilarious, feel-good musical despite its emotionally heavy ending that will leave your heart wrenched.
