The Tony Award-nominated Broadway revival of William Finn and James Lapine’s Falsettos, which returned to Broadway last season in a production from Lincoln Center Theater, will play Los Angeles in spring 2019 as part of the Center Theatre Group’s 2018-2019 season at the Ahmanson Theatre.
The season will open with the previously announced national tour of the Tony-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen, which will run October 17-November 25, 2018.
CTG also announced plans to present the national tour of Come From Away, the new Broadway musical by Tony- nominated writers Irene Sankoff and David Hein about travelers who find themselves stranded together in a small Newfoundland town during the events of 9/11. Come From Away will run November 28, 2018–January 26, 2019.
The CTG remounting of Falsettos will run April 16–May 19, 2019, under Lapine’s direction. The revival, which starred Christian Borle, Andrew Rannells, and Stephanie J. Block, was broadcast in movie theatres last summer, and aired on PBS in October.
The Los Angeles production of Falsettos will reunite the Broadway design team, including choreographer Spencer Liff, set designer David Rockwell, costume designer Jennifer Caprio, lighting designer Jeff Croiter, and sound designer Dan Moses Schreier. The revival features Michael Starobin’s original orchestrations.
The Play That Goes Wrong, the Olivier Award-winning farce about an amateur murder mystery that goes hopelessly awry, will play the Ahmanson July 9–August 11. Currently the longest-running play on Broadway, The Play That Goes Wrong transferred to Broadway last spring following an acclaimed London run. The L.A. engagement will be part of a planned national tour.
Two additional productions will be announced at a later date.
CTG’s current season includes Bright Star, Something Rotten!, Crazy for You, Soft Power, and The Humans.
