Sorry to add another bad review. I have a season membership and enjoy all the plays and musicals that SHNSF have offered, but this is the first time my guest and I walked out at intermission. We were truly disappointed.

1.0 star rating Kimberly N from San Francisco, California


Season ticket holder with a BA in vocal performance. Love the theater but this show was a huge miss for me. Story seemed disjointed and dull and while I respect the huge amount of energy and and time expelled by the actors to put on a show day after day, the singing had glaring pitch issues which was very distracting.

1.0 star rating Jonathan from San Francisco, California


Walked out at intermission after a far (far) too long 1st act. Bad songs. Bad story. Bad writing. The actors voices were the only thing better than abysmal in this show. But not nearly enough to hang on to. I’d have left after the 1st really, really bad song if I had known how dreadful this was going to be.

1.0 star rating K from San Francisco, California


Although I feel bad for the cast to have to play to an audience that is far smaller by second half than it was in the first, I couldn’t force myself to stay (for similar reasons to those listed by other reviewers). I’ve disliked other musicals, but have never left a show before. It is hard to watch.

My wife and I left at intermission and it was a struggle to get that far. The acting was awful, the characters completely unlikeable. The script was dated and did not age well at all. The Falsettos Hymn made no sense within the context of the show. I’ve never walked out of a show before but I couldn’t wait to eject from this one.

1.0 star rating Scott Johnson from San Francisco, California


I’m a huge fan of musical theater and regularly see plays and musicals. This is the first one I’ve seen that I could not wait for it to be over. A big chunk of the theater walked out during the show, but I held out hope that it would eventually get better. Sadly it just kept getting worse. The story was hard to follow and seemed very dated and unrelatable. The music was terrible and the singing was often off key and cringeworthy at times. The actors appear to be pretty seasoned, so I’m not sure what was going on. Maybe the material they were working with was just terrible to begin with? This show is a “revival” that probably should have stayed dead.

5.0 star rating Lola from San Francisco, California


Though I understand where these negative reviewers are coming from, I sincerely do not agree with them. Yes, it's not as flashy and big as something popular like Hamilton, but its simple production is extremely effective in telling this beautiful, heart-wrenching story. I've seen a lot of criticism of the set design, but I felt it was a genius way of reflecting the maturing of these characters throughout the show. These kinds of details are what make musical theatre so powerful. Everything down to the lighting was intentional and well thought out. This and the wonderful acting and music are what made Falsettos so beautiful. Seeing this show felt like being a part of true art and I left Golden Gate theatre in awe.
