Weekend To-Do: 'Falsettos'

‘FALSETTOS'
7:30 p.m., Weekend Theater. $14-$18.

After taking on Thornton Wilder to open its season, the Weekend Theater returns to more familiar territory with “Falsettos.” The theater describes the musical as “a nonstop songfest with a message of tolerance.” Delivering the message are a bisexual Jew who leaves his wife and young son for another man, a shrink with whom the wife takes up and the lesbian couple who live next door. That sounds a bit on the nose, but Frank Rich, in his review of the Broadway opening years ago, praised the show's “achingly articulate characters,” and the musical didn't win a Tony for nothing, surely. “Falsettos” runs through Oct. 24.
