Additional Info

In Trousers is the Marvin musical that precedes March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland. It centers on the women in Marvin's life-- his wife, his teacher and his high school honey-- and on his attempts to decide if he is hetero, homo or bi. Eventually, of course, Marvin does leave the rather shrewish and demanding woman in his life to find happiness with dear, delightful "Whizzer" Brown.

"These exploits...are set to music-- funny, bouncy, cleverly constructed music...it galvanizes whatever it touches. Finn's lyrics are even more cause for celebration. Densely packed with off the wall wit, these compact poems are tough little cookies that speak knowingly of the ups and downs of modern urban life." - The New York Post

"An innovative musical which succeeds as completely satisfying theatre." - Hollywood Reporter
