A complex exploration of love, selfishness, and the post-modern family, William Finn's 1981 tour de force is entirely sung but not at all reminiscent of conventional operetta. The story is of a man, his wife, his son, the man's male lover, and his shrink. The outstanding cast includes Michael Rupert and Chip Zien.
