Falsettoland is a musical with a book by James Lapine and music and lyrics by William Finn.
Following In Trousers and March of the Falsettos, it is the third in a trio of one-act musicals centering on Marvin, his wife Trina, his psychiatrist Mendel, his son Jason, and his gay lover Whizzer Brown. In this chapter of Marvin's life, Jason is preparing for his bar mitzvah and Whizzer is suffering from a mysterious, life-threatening, as yet undefined illness, which the audience recognizes is AIDS.
Falsettoland opened on June 28, 1990 at Playwrights Horizons in New York City. Three months later, it transferred to the Lucille Lortel Theatre, where it ran for 176 performances. The cast included Michael Rupert, Faith Prince, Stephen Bogardus, Chip Zien (later replaced by Lonny Price), and Heather MacRae.
A cast recording was released by DRG Records.
March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland eventually became Acts I and II of the 1992 Broadway production Falsettos.
