It is hard to imagine that any other theater in Richmond has made a greater positive, transformational change than Richmond Triangle Players has made in the last decade. In 2010, RTP transformed an old radiator shop into a warm and welcoming new venue, after vacating the crumbling building in which its theater had been housed. Since that time, RTP has won acclaim from its growing and diverse audiences, as well as from the Richmond Theatre Critics Circle, with over 90 “Best” nominations, the inaugural People’s Choice Award, and awards for Best Play and Best Musical twice each.

Falsettos

Music and Lyrics By William Finn
Book By William Finn and James Lapine

This groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical revolves around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, lover, about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. It’s a hilarious and achingly poignant look at the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family… and a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories. This production has been on RTP’s “wish list” for over five years and, now that the acclaimed Broadway revival has come to a close, now it can be produced in Richmond.

Times Square Angel

By Charles Busch

New York, 1948. Irish O’Flanagan is the tough as nails, red-headed headliner of the Club Intime. A lifetime of hard knocks has left her bitter and with a chip on her shoulder the size of Mount Rushmore. In the spirit of fantasies such as A Christmas Carol, It’s a Wonderful Life and The Bishop’s Wife, an angel in the form of a sexy vaudeville magician named Albert comes down to show Irish that the path she’s been taking is leading her to disaster. Her road to redemption is a campy, hilarious, Runyon-esque take on classic holiday tales.

A New Brain

By William Finn and James Lapine

An energetic, sardonic, often comical musical about a composer during a medical emergency. Gordon collapses into his lunch and awakes in the hospital, surrounded by his maritime-enthusiast lover, his mother, a co-worker, the doctor, and the nurses. Reluctantly, he had been composing a song for a children’s television show that features a frog – Mr. Bungee – and the specter of this large green character and the unfinished work haunts him throughout his medical ordeal. What was thought to be a tumor turns out to be something more operable, and Gordon recovers, grateful for a chance to compose the songs he yearns to produce.
