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.
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.
Samantha Elyer (Fun Home, The Laramie Project) plays the lesbian neighbor and physician Charlotte. She has been a musical theatre performer for over 15 years, a costume and props designer for just under 10 years and a performance teacher for 8 years. After earning her BA in Musical Theatre from Marywood University, she began working with several companies across multiple states until her work brought her to Upstate SC. Locally, she most recently performed as The Witch in Into the Woods with Market Theatre and as Marg Hamilton in The Inspector of Oz with Misfit Theatre.
