And Then There Was the Time the Star of FUN HOME Tweeted Me…

Alexa and I went to see Fun Home last night at the Circle in the Square Theater. We had been looking forward to it for a long time, and yesterday, with the day finally at hand, I tweeted about how excited we were. I happened to mention that one of the stars of the show, Sydney Lucas, blew me away when I saw her performance at the Tonys. Except I accidentally wrote Grammys. I corrected myself shortly afterward with another tweet. Then this happened:

My eyes nearly fell out of my head when I got that reply! I couldn’t stop jabbering about it over dinner. Then we went to see the show, and not only was Sydney Lucas amazing, the whole cast was! Fun Home is outstanding. I was sniffling through most of it, since it hit my two biggest emotional buttons: dead dad issues and scenes where adult characters interact with child versions of themselves. I don’t know why, but those things always get me. Anyway, go see Fun Home!

I had always been interested in reading Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel, but now I really, really want to read it.

    The graphic novel is phenomenal – I got a bit teary-eyed throughout quite a bit of it. I can’t recommend it enough.
