Most of the original cast of Falsettos reunited Jan. 9-12 for a weekend of sold-out concerts at the new Playwrights Horizons complex on West 42nd Street. Lonny Price directed the group, which included original cast members Michael Rupert (Marvin 1981, 1990 and 1992), Chip Zien (Mendel 1981, 1990 and 1992), Alison Fraser (Trina 1981), Faith Prince (Trina 1990), Heather MacRae (Charlotte 1990 and 1992) and Janet Metz (Cordelia 1990). For the concerts, Fraser will play Trina in March of the Falsettos (Act One) and Prince will play Trina in Falsettoland (Act Two), as originally premiered. And Falsettos is just the beginning. PH has invited back the creators and cast members of several shows launched at the not-for-profit: Jeanine Tesori and Brian Crawley's Violet (Jan. 16-19), Adam Guettel and Tina Landau's Floyd Collins (Jan. 23-26) and Christopher Durang's comic play, Laughing Wild (Jan. 30-Feb. 2).
