Leslie Bricusse's book follows the basic outline of the often told tale. The good Dr. Henry Jekyll is a man with a mission - develop a serum that will separate mankind's innate dichotomy of good and evil to cure mental illness (mainly, his father). Dr. Jekyll's desire to test his formula is aggressively rebutted by the hospital (asylum) board of directors. What's a healer/chemist/visionary to do? Take the serum yourself, and see what happens. What happens in the musical version is more of a 'what did you expect' moment rather than a tension filled drama of good intentions gone horribly wrong.BWW Review: THE LAST FIVE YEARS at Kent County Theatre Guild May 15, 2019

Let's start with a basic misconception - FUN HOME is not a comedy. The word 'fun' is an abbreviation for funeral. FUN HOME is the shortened, more enjoyable characterization of the Bechdel Funeral Home. Even though the young Bechdel children play inside caskets, and make-up silly commercials for the family business, not everything on Maple Avenue is fun. In fact, things can be downright sordid and unstable.BWW Interview: Kevin Austra of ROMEO + JULIET - A 21ST CENTURY TALE at Reedy Point Players August 25, 2018
