Fun Home (musical) and She Kills Monsters in rotation over two weekends
Fun Home is a musical adapted from Alison Bechdel's 2006 graphic memoir. The story concerns Bechdel's discovery of her own sexuality and her relationship with her gay father. It is the first Broadway musical with a lesbian protagonist.
"This extraordinary musical pumps oxygenating fresh air into the cultural recycling center that is Broadway" (nytimes.com).
She Kills Monsters is a dramatic comedy written by Qui Nguyen. Agnes Evans discovers that her deceased younger sister Tilly played the fantasy game Dungeons & Dragons. When she discovers a notebook that belonged to her sister, Agnes enlists a "dungeon master" to help her in playing the Quest Tilly described, and through this game, she discovers the sister she never really knew.
