Cast Spotlight: DeAna Earl as Trina in ‘Falsettos’

Proud Mary Theatre Company will present the Tony Award-winning musical Falsettos for six performances only October 29-30 in Spartanburg and November 5-6 in Greer.

With music and lyrics by William Finn and a book by William Finn and James Lapine, Falsettos marks the Upstate premiere of this 2016 Broadway revival about a dysfunctional Jewish family in late 1970s New York.

Falsettos includes such modern classics such as “Four Jews in a Room Bitching,” “My Father’s a Homo,” “I’m Breaking Down,” “I Never Wanted to Love You,” “Falsettoland,” “Love is Blind” and more and follows a married Jewish man (played by Brady Coyle-Smith) who leaves his wife for a younger guy, his wife, heir shrink, their son’s Bar Mitzvah, the lesbian professionals next door, and the arrival of AIDS.

DeAna Earl stars as Trina – the wife and mother – and is thrilled to be making her Proud Mary Theater Company debut with Falsettos! She has spent the last 12 years performing here in Greenville, playing various roles such as “Diana” in Lend Me A Tenor, “Mary Sunshine” in CHICAGO, “Morticia” in The Addams Family, and “Judy” in 9 to 5. She has performed in several shows at Flat Rock Playhouse in NC, and she also spent a year traveling the world as a lead singer on a Royal Caribbean ship, the Azamara Quest. DeAna started out as a classically trained singer, and then continued her contemporary music training at Shenandoah University where she became a certified teacher of Somatic Voicework, The LoVetri Method ™. She continues to use this method to coach both singers and actors in her private studio.

Falsettos also stars Brady Coyle-Smith as Marvin, Andy Lecture (Fun Home, Southern Baptist Sissies) as the other man, Josh Begelman (Fun Home, Saturday Night Live, WandaVision) plays their young Jason; John Carino (Upstate Shakespeare Festival) as the psychiatrist Mendel; and Samantha Elyer (Fun Home, The Laramie Project) and Hannah Searcy (Fun Home, Spartanburg Little Theatre’s The Little Mermaid, and Bright Star at Tryon Little Theater) play the lesbian neighbors Dr. Charlotte and kosher caterer Cordelia.
