BENEFITING: Human Rights Campaign NYC Marathon Team
ORGANIZER: Human Rights Campaign NYC Marathon Team
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
I am excited to have the opportunity to run in the 2015 New York City Marathon for the Tony Award winning Broadway musical FUN HOME. I was asked to be the fill in runner after one of the musicals actresses was injured. I have learned a lot about the HRC organization and am proud to be able to support such a great cause.
One of the most groundbreaking productions ever to hit Broadway, FUN HOME is the winner of five 2015 Tony Awards® including Best Musical. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, FUN HOME features the Tony-winning creative team of Jeanine Tesori (music), Lisa Kron (book and lyrics) and Sam Gold (direction).
FUN HOME introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family – her mother, brothers and volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father – that connect with her in surprising new ways. This intimate and emotional theatrical experience is performed entirely in the round, bringing audiences closer to Alison’s story than ever before. A refreshingly honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, FUN HOME is “a blazingly original heartbreaker and a nonstop treasure of invention” (Newsday)
