If you haven’t spent a night at the theatre lately, you really need to get out more. Here’s a suggestion, go see Fun Home. It’s tragic and humorous, well scripted, beautifully acted and the staging is impressive. Yeah, it’s good….or better yet, beyond good.
It’s timely, important, suitably appropriate for those who have no idea what it’s like to “come out of the closet” or for those who have, and wonder how the journey has been for those who don’t and won’t and feel that they can’t.
It’s a time warp of a musical, where the lead character changes ages, tries to capture feelings, and process many hundreds of questions all at the same moment.
You will laugh, you may cry, and you may come away wondering, if you’re straight, how anyone could possibly think of homosexuality as a choice one makes.
You might come away a bit more open-minded or a bit less judgmental, especially of those who feel trapped into acting in ways society finds acceptable. You might come away wondering how a family might have open discussions without fear, and possibly why some simply can’t navigate the cascading emotions.
Yeah, it’s that good.
Go see it and then you can tell me where you heard God speak to you, and what questions you are still processing about human nature and family dynamics.
