“I think there are a lot of forces at work in our culture that divide us, and this show is a work of art that cultivates empathy in the most beautiful and moving way,” says Kate Galvin, Artistic Director of Cardinal Stage Company, about its season finale, Fun Home. The Tony Award-winning musical adaption of Alison Bechdel’s graphic memoir of the same name is a dark comedy Bechdel’s childhood in a family-run funeral home, her coming of age and coming out, and her relationship with her own closeted father.

Although it’s rare for a local theatre company to change its lineup in midseason, Cardinal Stage Company will change its June show to Fun Home, a critically acclaimed adaptation of Alison Bechdel’s graphic memoir tragicomedy. “This show is very much in line with the high-quality, thought-provoking work we’ve produced in the past,” says Artistic Director Kate Galvin, “and I’m excited to bring it to life in a new way for our audience.” Click here to learn more about Cardinal Stage’s decision to produce Fun Home.
