Coachella Valley Repertory Presents Tony Award Best Musical FUN HOME

Broadway veterans, Leslie Tinaro (EVITA, MY FAIR LADY), Kristen Howe (ANNIE, JOSEPH AND THE TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT), and Victor Wallace (MAMMA MIA!) will star in the five-time Tony© Award-winning musical FUN HOME by Lisa Horn and Jeanine Tesori, at Coachella Valley Repertory.

FUN HOME, the second show in the 2022-2023 Season at CVRep, and received the Tonys' top three awards: Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score. Fun Home, the book, is Alison Bechdel's autobiographical graphic memoir that uncovers secrets through three different ages in her life.

FUN HOME isn't just a coming of age or coming out story, but one that sets out to unravel the many mysteries of childhood that everyone can identify with. It's a moving journey of acceptance in a wholly original American musical. The NY Times review said, "[FUN HOME's] universality comes from its awareness of how we never fully know even those closest to us, and of the undercurrent of grown-up secrets.

Performances of FUN HOME are Tuesdays through Sundays, December 6-10 and December 12-18. Curtain time for evening performances Wednesdays through Saturdays is 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. Free Talkback Thursdays are held after every Thursday performance, offering audience members the opportunity to discuss the plays with the directors and casts.

They may be ordered online at www.cvrep.org, by calling (760) 296-2966, ext. 115, or at the CVRep box office located at 68510 East Palm Canyon Dr., Cathedral City. Box office hours are Monday-Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and two hours prior to performances. Group tickets are available and can be arranged by calling the box office.

Review: Desert Ensembles Southern California Premiere of KILL THE EDITOR is a Great Produc Photo
Desert Ensemble Theatre is presenting the Southern California premiere of Aren Haun's comedic drama, KILL THE EDITOR. As is usual with DET, the directing, performances, and technical aspects of the production are top-notch. What lowers the presentation from a 'must see' to a B or B+ is that, in my opinion, the script has some flaws.
