A “prequel” to William Finn’s groundbreaking March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland, In Trousers, the opening chapter of the “Marvin Trilogy,” follows Marvin’s exploration of his sexuality and identity through his interaction with the three most important woman in his life: his high school sweetheart; his teacher; and his wife. Torn between his natural inclination and his desire not to upset his family life as he knows it, Marvin ultimately makes the decision he feels is best for him. This production is located at The Lounge Theater in Hollywood with a fabulous cast including: Braxton Molinaro, Tal Fox, Michelle Lane, Lea Madda, and Brooke van Grinsven.

LA Splash - Highly Recommended

"...IN TROUSERS is gifted with a trio of musicians who keep the music flowing - piano (music director Jake Anthony), percussion (Joe Martone), and bass (Ethan Chiampas). Marvin's story is told through song, with book, music, and lyrics by William Finn. Lyrics are especially clever as Finn dissects the thoughts and feelings of his four principals who telegraph their every emotion with voice, facial expression, and body language. Kudos to the cast. Be prepared for a music fest performed by seven talented artists. Corey Lynn Howe's set is fluid as time and place ebb and flow. Costume designer Michael Mullen has fun with the real and symbolic movement of the piece. IN TROUSERS is a highly entertaining play told through music and movement."

"...We are lucky to have this production at the Lounge theatre. "IN TROUSERS" is rarely produced, and was originally written in 1979. It is a must see for its music, the talented actors, and its message. "

"...Finn has created a hummable score that gets a full bodied rendition here by the onstage band. He loves wordplay and really has fun with his lyrics as you can tell from some of the song titles-"How Marvin Eats His Breakfast," "Marvin's Giddy Seizures," "The Rape of Miss Goldberg," "How the Body Falls Apart," and more. It truly is a delight to see and hear this rarity once more. See In Trousers and have a giddy seizure yourself."
