Who Readers Would Dream Cast in the Revival of Falsettos

Polls   Who Readers Would Dream Cast in the Revival of Falsettos William Finn and James Lapine's Tony-winning musical Falsettos will return to Broadway in spring 2016, with Tony winner Lapine again at the helm. Part intimate family drama, part neurotic urban comedy, Falsettos was groundbreaking in its original 1992 Broadway staging through its exploration of AIDS and observations on the shifting definition of the American family. While casting won't be announced for some time, we took to social media to ask Playbill.com readers how they would dream cast the revival. To see whom Playbill.com would dream cast, click here

Nick Adams as Whizzer

For some, Cheyenne Jackson is a more suitable Marvin. The talented actor could undoubtedly play both, but it would be interesting to see Jackson's Marvin alongside Nick Adams' Whizzer as one Playbill.com reader suggested. The handsome Adams would be a terrific fit for the role of the young lover who matures into a loving partner and mentor. Having recently played Fiyero in the national tour of Wicked, Adams' Broadway credits also include such gay-themed classics as Priscilla Queen of the Desert and La Cage aux Folles.

Kate Baldwin as Trina

Tony nominee Kate Baldwin is already familiar with Falsettos, having played Cordelia in the Huntington Theatre's production in Boston. We'd like to see her switch it up and give Trina a go, the somewhat neurotic Jewish mom and ex-wife to Marvin. Baldwin currently stars in the Off-Broadway revival of Andrew Lippa's two-hander musical, John & Jen. Her numerous Broadway credits include Finian's Rainbow, for which she was Tony,nominated, as well as Big Fish, Wonderful Town and Thoroughly Modern Millie.
