A COMING-OUT MUSICAL
Welcome to the Bechdel family. But just what family is it? Through the searching eyes of daughter Alison—aged 9, 19, and then 43—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 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. Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Musical, from the composer of Caroline, or Change and the writer of 2.5 Minute Ride.
Content Advisory: Based on Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel and her real life, this musical explores some coming-of-age topics best suited for middle schoolers and up.
Approximate runtime is 90 minutes. There will be no intermission.
