Stacy Makishi: The Falsettos

Stacy Makishi: The Falsettos


Lancaster welcomes the inimitable Stacy Makishi with a stunning new solo show, The Falsettos, a deftly woven mix of text, movement and stand-up. An honest and hilarious display of Makishi’s intimate reflections on murder, mortality and mid-life crisis, The Falsettos splices together influences from American popular culture including The Sopranos, Barbra Streisand and E.T.

With mobs, midlife, lowlife and taboo getting the Makishi treatment, this is a show for our times - uncompromising, compassionate and joyously absurd.

Commissioned by Chelsea Theatre, Colchester Arts Centre and the Basement, and supported by the Roddick Foundation. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Produced by Artsadmin.
