As reported previously in this blog, Fun Home features Columbia alum Hannah Starr ’14, a graduate of the Theatre Department’s BA Program in Acting. The musical is inspired by writer-illustrator Alison Bechdel’s bestselling graphic memoir about coming of age, including her process of coming out as a lesbian. Fun Home has been extended through November 19.
The price for all this — pizza, Fun Home, and the playwrights’ performance afterwards — is only $15 for college students on Friday, October 20. For tickets, students should call 773-871-3000 to reserve seats or else just show up at the box office that evening (but in that case the show may be sold out). Student tickets are not available online. Victory Gardens Theatre is located at 2433 N. Lincoln, Chicago.
