Playbill.com has learned that the cast — directed by John Znidarsic — will feature Jill Abramovitz (Cordelia), Zachary Allen (Jason), Keith Gerchak (Mendel), Colin Hanlon (Whizzer), Lisa Howard (Trina), Michael Hunsaker (Marvin) and Leisa Mather (Charlotte). Rick Hip-Flores and Joshua Salzman will be the musical directors for the 8 PM performance. Falsettoland — the final part of Finn's Marvin trilogy (In Trousers, March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland) — centers around the planning of a bar mitzvah for Marvin and Trina's son Jason, while Marvin's lover Whizzer becomes stricken with a then-mysterious, fatal disease. Song titles include "The Baseball Game," "What More Can I Say," "Something Bad Is Happening," "Unlikely Lovers," "You Gotta Die Sometime" and "What Would I Do?" The original Off-Broadway cast boasted Faith Prince, Michael Rupert, Chip Zien, Janet Metz, Heather Mac Rae and Stephen Bogardus.
Miracle House, according to press notes, was chosen to present Falsettoland to "acknowledge the 25th anniversary of the AIDS epidemic and honor our organization's history of serving caregivers of people living with HIV/AIDS. Miracle House's founding members began a legacy of hope and compassion and now our doors are open to people seeking critical medical treatment from around the world."
New World Stages, Stage 2 is located in Manhattan at 340 West 50th Street. A pre-show VIP cocktail party will precede the performance.For ticket information visit www.telecharge.com or www.miraclehouse.org.
