Making their local premieres are the 2015 Tony Award winners Fun Home (Best Musical), a coming-of-age story based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic novel, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (Best Play), a moving play adapted from the popular, award-winning mystery novel by Mark Haddon.
