Falsettos will surely not disappoint.
Conquering the subject of the AIDS epidemic is not an easy task, but it is one of the main focuses of the newest show coming to Montclair State: Falsettos. Written by William Finn, this musical is all about infidelity during the peak of the AIDS era. This critically acclaimed show won Tony awards for Best Book and Best Musical Score. The story involves Marvin, his ex-wife Trina, his psychiatrist Mendel, his son Jason, and his gay lover, Whizzer Brown.
