Fun Home, music by Jeanine Tesori, book and lyrics by Lisa Kron @ Klein Theatre

The journey to adulthood is a road of peaks and valleys. All of us share the experience of what it means to grow up in an uncertain world, to search and stumble along the way, and to forge our way to a meaningful future. In a refreshingly honest, gorgeously conceived, and exceptionally innovative musical based on Alison Bechdel’s heartbreaking graphic memoir, Fun Home reminds us of the life-affirming joy that comes from facing our fears to become the person we were meant to be.

“ . . . a beautiful heartbreaker of a musical. ” —The New York Times

” . . . dazzling musical . . . a wonderfully funny, mischievous account of family life and a touching memoir about growing up.” —Financial Times

Tickets will be made available online, over the phone and in person at the Klein Theatre Box Office starting October 31, 2019. The Klein Theatre Box Office is open Monday – Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm.

Amadeus by Peter Shaffer
Professional jealousy and personal crisis drive composer Antonio Salieri to turn from God towards one clear, dark, and menacing goal: destroying the brash young newcomer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. A highly fictionalized account of Mozart’s final years and Salieri’s jealous pursuit to ruin one of the greatest musical geniuses of all time, Amadeus is equal parts psychological thriller, insightful biography, and morality tale.

Four young New Yorkers navigate the chaos of being alive in the city that never sleeps, in a world that is eternally shifting. While seemingly unconnected, their paths become entwined in the most unexpected of ways and at the most unlikely of moments. This simple, sweet musical by one of today’s most impressive musical theatre talents, Adam Gwon, reminds us that remarkable lives grow from weeks, months, and years of quite Ordinary Days.

“. . . a sad-sweet comment on the anonymity of life in the city, where it is possible to change other people’s fates without actually getting to meet them.” —The New York Times

“A fresh alternative to most of the overproduced stuff on Broadway.” —The Washington Post
