There’s a Tony Award-winning musical coming to downtown Buffalo! If you appreciate a moving story with a dysfunctional-yet-loving family, this one’s worth looking into. Fun Home, produced by MusicalFare Theatre, is based on a celebrated graphic novel by Alison Bechdel. And yes, that means it’s based on a true story.

We appreciate true stories because they’re a little more real and relatable. And this one’s a
fan favorite for so many reasons. 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. Throughout the performance, her memories are revealed—and the experience is “heart-gripping and cathartic”, according to the New York Times.

You can catch Fun Home at Buffalo’s very own Shea’s 710 Theatre. Tickets are available May 9th
through May 19th. For just $44 each, you can score a really good seat. (And if you’re a broke college student who loves shows? No worries, you can score student tickets for $20 a pop. We’ve all been there.)

Summers in Buffalo get out-of-control-crazy in the best way possible. But real talk, people’s social calendars fill up fast, so planning ahead is key—AKA ask your friends now and pick your seats!

Our recommendation? Make a night of it. If you’re out for date night, treat yourself to dinner and a show. There are all sorts of cool restaurants within walking distance of the theater, so try something new!
