Falsettos Cast Spotlight: Director John Fagan


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.

Falsettos is directed by John Fagan (The Boys in the Band). John is pleased to be back at Proud Mary Theatre where he directed The Boys in the Band.
