Fun Home, the 2015 Tony-award winning musical adapted from Alison Bechdel’s 2006 graphic memoir of the same name, takes the stage this month at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. Running from April 18th to May 13th, Fun Home is the first Broadway musical with a lesbian protagonist. Baltimore OUTloud recently chatted with Karen Eilbacher, who plays Joan in the musical, to discuss her character, the show’s underlying messages, and what audiences can expect.
Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus brings its “Out of This World Tour” to Baltimore for one final act before permanently closing in May of this year. Running from April 20th to 30th at the Royal Farms Arena, audiences will be captivated by an interactive, action-packed storyline filled with space-age family fun and technology.
Jonathan Larson once wrote, “In these dangerous times, where it seems that the world is ripping apart at the seams, we all can learn how to survive from those who stare death squarely in the face every day and [we] should reach out to each other and bond as a community, rather than hide from the terrors of life at the end of the millennium.”
It’s always exciting to see new theatre work happening in Baltimore. While the Hippodrome presents revivals of popular Broadway musicals, Everyman Theatre (just a few blocks west) is taking a big risk by bringing an entirely new musical theatre to Baltimore.
Everyman’s new associate artistic director, Noah Himmelstein, takes the helm of Los Otros, a new musical making its world premiere in Baltimore. I had the opportunity to chat via email with Himmelstein, McLane and Everyman’s artistic director, Vincent M. Lancisi.
