About The Event
While we can't choose our family, we can choose our community. Get out with other Mixolo solos and theater enthusiasts to witness the widely acclaimed musical, Fun Home. You can sit with us.
Winner of the 2015 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score, Fun Home upends the genre; a must-see for musical "haters" and the die-hard fans.
Fun Home is a groundbreaking tragicomedy that defies the "lightness" often associated with musical performances as it explores the dynamics of a troubled family deftly in this compelling coming-of-age story.
Welcome to the Bechdel family. But just what family is it? Through the searching eyes of daughter Alison—aged 9, 17, and then 42—we meet her ever-shifting and sometimes unreliable memories of brothers, mother, and above all her repressed father, along with recollections from the family funeral home to Alison’s coming out.
Based on Alison Bechdel’s own best-selling illustrated memoir, this poignant tale harnesses every facet of music and theater to explore and unravel the mysteries of childhood and the surprising secrets that shape a life.
ABOUT OUR VENUE
Maryland's "official state theater," is situated in Baltimore's historic Mount Vernon district. Founded in 1963, Baltimore Center Stage is recognized as a pioneer in the regional theater movement in the 20th century. In 2017, the theater completed an award-winning $28 million building renovation of the historic complex that created more opportunities for art-making and community building, with new public spaces to gather before and after shows and state-of-the-art performance spaces with the best in theater design and technology.
WHERE TO FIND MIXOLO:
We'll gather on the fourth floor in the Deering Lounge at 1:30PM for a meet and greet in front of the Head Theater where the performance will take place.
Your ticket includes admission to the 2:00PM performance and an optional pre-performance "touch" tour. Touch Tours are tactile tours that let patrons touch costume pieces, sets, and/or props used in the show as well as conversation with the theater's Production, Artistic, and/or Dramaturgy Departments before the 2 PM matinee. Touch Tours run from 12–1pm and patrons are welcome to join at any time in that window.
You may also opt in for audio descriptions; volunteer audio describers provide an objective description of the non-verbal action on stage during the 2 PM matinee.
