Book and lyrics by Lisa Kron
Music by Jeanine Tesori
Based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel
Show Dates: September 14-30

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the unanswered questions about her early years. A wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
