On Wednesday, May 16 at 8:00 PM, you are invited to a special Pay-What-You-Can performance of FUN HOME!

Hailed as one of Broadway's most original musicals and winner of 5 Tony Awards, FUN HOME is a groundbreaking story inspired by Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir. After the sudden death of her father, Alison sets out to unravel the many mysteries of her childhood growing up at the family funeral home in Central Pennsylvania. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her life through a series of memories and conversations- from her coming out to her moving journey to acceptance. Featuring a gorgeous score by Jeanine Tesori (CAROLINE, OR CHANGE) and brilliant book and lyrics by Lisa Kron (2.5 MINUTE RIDE), FUN HOME is a refreshingly honest, moving new musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

The Pay-What-You-Can Performance is the Arden's final dress rehearsal before the play opens to a paying audience. In lieu of purchasing tickets, patrons will be asked to make a donation in the amount of their choosing.

All proceeds will benefit William Way LGBT Community Center. William Way LGBT Community Center encourages, supports, and advocates for the well-being and acceptance of sexual and gender minorities in the Greater Philadelphia region through service, recreational, educational, and cultural programming.
