There is a stunning new musical opening tonight at the Public Theater. 

adapted from the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel, 
is making it's world premiere Off-Broadway.

An autobiographical exploration of Bechdel's relationship with her father and what she discovers about him after his death, as well as her discoveries about her own sexuality, Fun Home (her nickname for the funeral home her father runs) is a deeply moving play that is definitely on my Run and See list 
(currently playing through November 17)!

My friend Alexandra Socha, who I worked with on The Dream of the Burning Boy
plays Alison at age 19, and requested cookies to celebrate their Opening Night!

I made some cookies to reflect the cover of the graphic novel.

And some of the image on the Playbill.

Happy Opening, Fun Home!
