So, you have some time to ask a group of friends to catch a show. Hey, you might even want to grab some grub before you go, and look here for some options close by.
Fun Home received 12 Tony Award nominations and won five Tony Awards in 2015 including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Direction of a Musical. Based on the 2006 graphic novel/memoir written by award-winning author Alison Bechdel, the show promises fun times for all.
In her book, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, Bechdel shares stories of her life of growing up in rural Pennsylvania; her family’s funeral home business; living with her father, a closeted gay man, whose death was likely a suicide; and her own coming out when she was in college. Time magazine named the book one of its top ten in 2006.
As soon as you take a seat in this welcoming and intimate space of the Studio Two Theatre, you’ll realize the treat in store. When local actors take the stage, all show goers get the best seat in the house. So, sit back and enjoy.
