BROADWAYCON ANNOUNCES IN TROUSERS REUNION FEATURING ORIGINAL CAST AND CREATIVE TEAM MEMBERS
New York, NY (Dec. 8, 2016) – BroadwayCon announced today that a special In Trousers Reunion will take place at BroadwayCon 2017, January 27-29 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Moderated by musical theatre historian Jennifer Ashley Tepper, the Reunion will include original cast members Chip Zien (Marvin), Alison Fraser (His Wife), and Mary Testa (Miss Goldberg), William Finn (Book, Music, Lyrics, Director), André Bishop, and Ira Weitzman. Bishop and Weitzman were integral to the premiere production of In Trousers in 1979, which was Playwrights Horizons’ first musical. Bishop and Weitzman are now Producing Artistic Director and Mindich Chair Musical Theater Associate Producer at Lincoln Center, respectively.
In 1979, William Finn made his off-Broadway debut with In Trousers, the first of the "Marvin" musicals. March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland followed, later combined into the Tony Award-winning Broadway show Falsettos... but In Trousers was the one that started it all. Join these members of the original team as they remember what it was like to create this extraordinary musical over 35 years ago.
Additional details for the In Trousers Reunion will be announced at a later date.
