Synopsis

William Finn and James Lapine's musical combines The March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland, two chapters in the story of Marvin, who leaves his wife and child for a male lover, and the extended family's comic and dramatic attempts to co-exist as the lover contracts the AIDS virus. March, Falsettoland and an earlier chapter in the story, In Trousers, all premiered separately off-Broadway.
