FALSETTOLAND is a classic and this production, a true gift… succeeds on every level.
(David Roberts: Theatre Reviews Limited)
This production of FALSETTOLAND was the brainchild of Director Alan Muraoka. He earlier staged the enormously well-received concert version of the musical for NAATCO’s spring benefit and the sold-out audience included an enthusiastic William Finn, the show’s composer and librettist.
