Three Rivers Music Theatre Premieres Groundbreaking "Fun Home"
Fun Home, one of the most celebrated Broadway musicals of the decade, made its groundbreaking debut in 2015 as the first musical in history to feature a lesbian protagonist.
And this weekend, thanks to Three Rivers Music Theatre, the play is making its regional premiere right here in Fort Wayne, at Wunderkammer Company.
Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir of the same name, the story, which unfolds at the family's funeral home business, concerns the author's coming of age, and uncovering a family secret.
For a sneak preview of what's in store, WBOI's Julia Meek sat down last week with director, Andy Planck, and lead actor, Kat Hickey, to learn how the production is taking shape, and how they hope it will impact their audiences.
