After almost 30 years of waiting, London theatregoers can finally see the multi-award-winning Falsettos later this year.  Selladoor Worldwide – the producers behind 9 to 5, Big Fish, American Idiot, and Avenue Q – is bringing the long-awaited European premiere of William Finn and James Lapine’s show to The Other Palace theatre for your viewing pleasure.

Falsettos tells the hilarious and poignant story of an evolving family. It looks at the dynamics of Marvin (a gay man), his wife, his lover, his soon to be bar mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbian neighbours. Originally premiering on Broadway in 1992 and set in 1979, this ground-breaking musical – which is broken into two parts, March Of The Falsettos and Falsettoland – explores a new world for Marvin and the impact of the AIDS crisis.

About the upcoming run, David Hutchinson, CEO of Selladoor Worldwide, said: “This is a show we have wanted to bring to London since we embarked on our careers as producers. We’ve been exploring and planning this one for nearly a decade, and I am delighted that today we can tell the world that this beautiful, critically-acclaimed musical – is finally coming to the capital.”

The show’s original run was nominated for seven Tony Awards of which it won two – for Best Original Score and Best Book Of A Musical – and its 2016 Broadway revival was nominated for four Tony Awards.

Falsettos will run at The Other Palace from 30 August – 23 November. Casting is yet to be announced and tickets will go on general sale from Monday 6 May.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
