The season begins with Impro Theatre’s Sondheim UnScripted (Aug. 19 – Sept. 27), directed by Dan O’Connor and Michele Spears. The completely improvised musical in the style of Stephen Sondheim starts with audience suggestions as the cast and musicians create a wholly original, thrilling musical based on Sondheim’s intricate rhymes, soaring counter melodies and complex themes.

Troubadour Theater Company returns to The Falcon for the holidays reviving a fan-favorite, the parody of holiday classic, Santa Claus is Comin’ to Motown (Dec . 2 – Jan 17), directed by Matt Walker. Telling the tale of Kris Kringle’s (aka Santa Claus) origin, the Troubies take the jolly old man himself and send him to the land of Smokey Miracles and Supreme Temptations.

In this story, you’ll get to meet the wives, Joanne, Babette, Penny, Lulu, and Beezus: The Real Housewives of Toluca Lake. Scandalous surprises and bitter betrayals mix with a healthy dose of Pinot Grigio and pharmaceuticals to create this hilarious romp inspired by America’s not-so-secret guilty pleasure. The Falcon’s season will also include two plays, Scott and Hem (Oct. 14 – Nov. 15), by Mark St. Germain, directed by Dimitri Toscas, and The Complete History of America (abridged) (Feb. 3 – March 6), by Adam Long Reed Martin & Austin Tichenor. falcontheatre.com
