Join the LBTQ Giving Council of Chicago Foundation for Women for a special viewing of FUN HOME at Victory Gardens! Meet and mingle with the giving council members while enjoying this fall’s must-see musical. Ticket prices include a private pre-reception with wine and cheese, and a post-show town hall discussion about the LGBTQ community post-marriage equality.
A portion of the proceed benefits the LBTQ Giving Council of Chicago Foundation for Women, which is committed to fundraising in order to provide grants to organizations and programs benefiting the lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning communities in the Chicago region.
Hailed as one of Broadway’s most original musicals and the winner of 5 Tony Awards, Fun Home is a groundbreaking story inspired by Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir. In this intimate musical, Alison sets out to unravel the many mysteries of her childhood through a series of memories and conversations – from her coming out to her moving journey to acceptance. Gary Griffin (Hand to God, Never the Sinner) directs this emotionally charged family drama that The New York Times calls “extraordinary,” and “a rare beauty.” You may read more about Victory Gardens and Fun Home here.
