Spencer Liff, choreographer, and Jordan Roth, producer of the musical “Falsettos,” in conversation with host Richard Wolinsky.

The musical Falsettos, now at the Golden Gate Theatre through April 14, 2019, was originally produced in New York in April 1992 and ran for nearly 500 performances. The show, which is one of the earliest musicals to deal with coming out of the closet and with AIDS, was revived on Broadway in 2016 and it’s that Lincoln Center production which is now on tour in the Bay Area.

Spencer Liff has previously been a dancer and ensemble performer on Broadway, and has choreographed the recent revivals of Spring Awakening, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and most recently Head Over Heels. Justin Roth is the president and majority owner of Jujamcyn theatres in New York; among his most recent productions are Bruce Springsteen on Broadway, Angels in America, and Mean Girls.
