Virginia Stage Company's FUN HOME NIGHT OUT Celebrates Queer Narratives at the Wells Theatre
Virginia Stage Company partners with Outwire757, LGBT Life Center, and HRBOR for Fun Home Night Out - an evening of art and stories honoring queer narratives. All are welcome to attend on January 25 for a pre-show mixer at the Wells Theatre featuring Happy Hour drinks and gallery display of "My Family" - a photo project produced by the LGBT Life Center, which celebrates the unique diversity of LGBTQ+ families in Hampton Roads. The latest edition of OutLife757, Coastal Virginia's LGBTQ lifestyle magazine, will be available to all who attend, as well as copies of the "My Family" photo booklet.
Pre-Show festivities begin at 6pm and the party continues after the show with Outwire757's monthly Out in the Open Story Slam in the Tazewell Lounge. Enjoy a cash bar, free eats, and share your very own Fun Home stories on stage.
Alison Bechdel's iconic graphic novel comes to life in this Tony Award-winning masterpiece musical.

Coming to understand her past leads her on a path of self-discovery and her own journey as an LGBTQ writer, artist, and woman. Join Virginia Stage for this groundbreaking musical enjoyed by play and musical lovers alike that brings forward aspects of our society that do not often take center stage.
