But the cast of Falsettos will see it for the first time June 5 at an industry screening. “We’re all a bit excited yet nervous,” Block told Playbill from the red carpet of the Drama Desk Awards June 4. “When you’re onstage in theatre, you control. If it’s a crappy night, my fault. If it’s a beautiful night, we did that together and we did that live. Now, it was in the director’s hands, which we trust James [Lapine] implicitly, but there’s an editor, there’s different camera angles, and then we’ve got to sit in the theatre and see our faces 20–30 feet high. So I’m excited, but there’s something a little anxiety-provoking.”

Falsettos ended its limited engagement at the Walter Kerr Theatre January 8. But Block has been busy, appearing on CBS’ Madam Secretary and working on theatrical projects. “I’m very lucky to say I’ve got three different workshops going for new musicals, so we’ll see if one of them actually pops up to fruition,” she said.

Block will also appear on the new NBC television show Rise (previously titled Drama High.) “I was a recurring guest on this pilot,” she said, “and they did indeed pick it up. By no means is it my show, but I’ll be popping up.”
