News Release Date:

For Immediate Release
‘Falsettos’ on NET Features Andrew Rannells of Omaha

LINCOLN, Neb. (Oct. 18, 2017) – “Falsettos,” which was nominated for the 2017 Tony Awards for best revival of a musical, will air on NET Friday, Oct. 27, at 8 p.m. CT. The production stars Omaha native Andrew Rannells who received a Tony nomination for his 2016 performance of Whizzer in the Broadway revival of “Falsettos.” 

With its razor-sharp portrait of a “modern family” in the making, this timely musical manages to remain buoyant and satirically perceptive even as it moves toward its heartbreaking conclusion. 

“Falsettos” is described as a hilarious and poignant look at middle-class family dynamics revolving around the life of a gay man, his wife, his lover, his soon-to-be-bar-mitzvahed son, and their psychiatrist.

Rannells received a 2012 Grammy Award for best musical theater album as a featured soloist in his role of Elder Price on the original cast recording for “The Book of Mormon.”
