About the show

This Tony Award-winning musical by William Finn and James Lapine is a hilarious and heartrending story of a modern New York family at the end of the 1970s revolving around the life of a gay man Marvin, his wife, his lover, his soon-to-be bar mitzvah’d son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. Intelligent and subversive, it exposes all the messiness of loving and growing up.

This visionary musical theatre work is directed by David Berthold (Holding the Man), with music direction by Michael Tyack (Come From Away), and choreography by Kelley Abbey (Dancing with the Stars), and is a timely and tender reminder that love can tell a million stories.
