There are several Broadway musical premiers in the Quist app, including RENT, A Chorus Line, The Children’s Hour, and West Side Story. Many of them represent gay or bisexual men’s contributions to the arts having written them. But there had never been a Broadway show with a lesbian protagonist… until now.
Fun Home tells the life story of history-making lesbian Alison Bechdel, a MacArthur Genius Award recipient and cartoonist of the legendary Dykes to Watch Out For. If that wasn’t enough quistory for you in one show, it also boasts the first Tony Award ever given to an all-female writing team. From FunHomeBroadway.com:
FUN HOME introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family—her mother, brothers and volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father—that connect with her in surprising new ways. This intimate and emotional theatrical experience is performed entirely in the round, bringing audiences closer to Alison’s story than ever before. Hailed as “the best musical of the season” by both The New York Times and New York Magazine, FUN HOME “demonstrates how much our world has changed and reflects just how far we’ve come” (The Wall Street Journal).
That’s why we’re so proud to partner with this production who has given us two tickets to an evening performance! And we’re auctioning them off to you, our Quist fans. A $249.00 value, the bidding starts at $99. Yes, that’s a 60% discount! So, if you’re in NYC or want to make a trip there for the show (and all of the other amazing LGBTQ things to do and see), hop on over to the auction page to make your bid.
All proceeds will go directly to Quist’s LGBTQ history education programming, including our free app and our customizable workshops. If Broadway isn’t your thing, we would appreciate your support on our Patreon page.
