Willy Falk: "Mostly Love"

The best songs are about love--playful, passionate, heartbreaking, enduring. Willy Falk: Mostly Love revels in richly-crafted interpretations of songs about love, coupled with stories from a thirty-five-year career on Broadway. A Punahou graduate, class of '76, he moved to New York and burst on the Broadway scene in the Marilyn: An American Fable, a musical which attained cult-like status as one of the greatest flops of all time, but saw Willy receiving a standing ovation ever night for his solo number: "You Are So Beyond." When Miss Saigon first came to Broadway, he was chosen to play leading man "Chris," receiving a Tony award nomination alongside Jonathan Pryce and Lea Salonga. Known for his powerful performances in musicals and concerts through the years, this evening speaks of music, memories, and laughter but mostly...love.

Quotes:
"Willy Falk has been one of Hawaii's pioneering talents and voices to make it to Broadway; he continues to inspire a generation of other island troupers to follow his example." --Wayne Harada, Honolulu Star-Advertiser

"Falk soared in the vocal inflections of rock so dazzlingly that the audience that had been jeering all night gave him an ovation DURING the music. The applause following the number briefly stopped the show--and after a very short book scene--Falk got another ovation." Ethan Mordden, The Last Twenty-Five Years of the Broadway Musical

"We certainly take as many cues from Mr. Falk's earnestly American, nice-guy aura, and the vigor of his voice, as we do from what he is singing. When he and Miss Salonga come together, the basic laws of biology supplant those of the drama. They look good in each other's arms, the way movie stars looked good when the studios were masterminding their careers." David Richards, The New York Times
