Chosen family: Karin Terry as neighbor Cordelia, Nicholas Main as Marvin’s lover Whizzer, Jon Lutyens* as Marvin, Meg McLynn as Marvin’s wife Trina, Josh Doyle as their son Jason, and Bruce Haasl as Marvin’s psychiatrist (and later Trina’s husband) Mendel. Kristen Natalia, not available for this shoot, plays Dr. Charlotte, Cordelia’s partner.
Conventional family: Josh Doyle as Jason, with Jon Lutyens* as his father Marvin, and Meg McLynn as his mother Trina. Before the action of Falsettos begins, Marvin and Trina have separated and Marvin has begun a relationship with Whizzer, played by Nicholas Main.
Tensions mounting: Karin Terry plays Cordelia, a neighbor of Trina’s. Whizzer, played by Nicholas Main, captures Marvin’s heart before the action begins, leaving his wife Trina and his young son Jason to pick up the pieces.
