ArtBuzz Theatrics presents the Tony Award-winning musical “Falsettos,” April 26 through May 19 at Empire Stage in Fort Lauderdale.

A “sung through” musical with a book by William Finn and James Lapine, and music and lyrics by William Finn, "Falsettos" revolves around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, his lover, his about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. "Falsettos" was nominated for seven Tony Awards and won two – for Best Book and Best Original Score.

“After seeing a touring production of Falsettos – I believe in the early ‘90s, this show became an instant favorite,” says ArtBuzz Theatrics Producer and Founder Larry Buzzeo in a press release. “The score is beautiful – ranging from energetic Sondheimish patter songs to beautiful and poignant ballads. There are no villains or heroes, and the show accurately presents people with much humor.” Performances are on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 5 p.m.


Broward Center has become one of the foremost creative laboratories for the creation of musicals that have been truncated and made age-appropriate adaptations of classic Broadway show, usually for production by children’s theater groups and schools, such as “Beetlejuice Jr.,” “Matilda Jr.,” “Something Rotten, Jr.!” and “Best of Broadway Jr. Revue.” The Broward Center for the Performing Arts has been selected by Music Theater International to be among the first in the country to produce DreamWorks Theatricals “Trolls the Musical Jr.,” a brand-new original musical prior to its official release. The musical will be presented in the Amaturo Theater at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 23 and Friday, May 24. A special sensory-inclusive performance will take place on Saturday, May 25 at 10:30 a.m.
