Broadway is about to get its most important LGBT show yet 

Broadway’s upcoming season features a show that will entirely change the way we talk about lesbians on stage.
Fun Home is a musical adaptation of Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel of the same name. It arrives on Broadway in 2015 after a sold-out, critically acclaimed run at the Public Theater. The show, which was nominated for this year’s Pulitzer in Drama, is the most daring, relentless analysis of homosexual identity on the New York stage right now. 
The set-up seems simple enough, but the results are anything but.

All great answers in different ways wow! Going in order
1. I’m going check him out right after I post this.
2. I’m not sure, that was his wording. Maybe not like “outrageous” but like extreme, the opposite of bland/”beige”. (For our last assignment I smeared lipstick all over my face and pretended I was prom queen… in a piece about cult arson… to give you an idea of my ‘work’ so far).
3. I was actually about to bring something from Red in because I knew there was some solid like 2-minute angry monologue and I was sort of desperate…
4. That’s usually my first instinct but I’m always afraid it’s over done.

Yo so my acting teacher said the monologue I brought in was “too beige” and now I need to find something else. He wants it to be “bright red” (I asked him to clarify this and he said for me he wanted it to be comedic and “outrageous as possible” so…)

I’m not asking for specific selections, but any suggestions on ‘contemporary’ playwrights to look into? With that sort of style ??

Oh don’t get me wrong I’m ‘living for it’ but the drama this year is just so much

But Lenox can really turn it out….

jrb comes off as really… in real life…

but the finale to parade is so good…

Here is a pic of Grace Jones shoving cake into Divine’s mouth at what I believe was Grace’s 30th birthday party…you’re welcome!

It’s like “The Creation of Adam,” but relevant to my interests.
