Biography

March of the Falsettos is a musical with a book, lyrics, and music by William Finn.

A sequel to In Trousers, the one-acter continues the story of Marvin and his journey in search of self-understanding, inner peace, and a life with a “happily ever after” ending. His extended family consists of ex-wife Trina, son Jason, gay lover Whizzer, and psychiatrist Mendel, who complicates matters by becoming involved with Trina. By the end of the piece, Marvin is still unsettled, but he at least knows he has salvaged his relationship with his son.

Directed by James Lapine, the production opened on May 20, 1981 at Playwrights Horizons, where it ran for four months. It transferred to the Westside Theatre and continued for 268 performances. The cast included Michael Rupert, Alison Fraser, James Kushner, Stephen Bogardus, and Chip Zien. An original cast recording was released by DRG Records.

Finn completed his Marvin trilogy with Falsettoland, which eventually became, with March of the Falsettos, the two-act Broadway musical Falsettos.
