Fun Home, the Tony Award-winning musical about a gay woman coming of age, continues its run at the Winspear Opera House through Sunday, and it also is doing its part to reach out to North Texas’ gay community.
Tonight, Dallas Voice’s David Taffet will moderate a panel from 6–7 p.m. before curtain, which will explore Dallas’ gay history in Hamon Hall inside the opera house. Among the panelists will be CeCe Cox, Terry Loftis, Jack Pettit and Robert Emery. The discussion is free and open to the public, and doesn’t not require you have a ticket to see Fun Home to attend (though you really should see it).
Then on Thursday — also in Hamon Hall, only following the performance — cast members will host an intimate cabaret-style night of music, with proceeds benefiting Thrive Youth Center in San Antonio, which served LGBTQIA at-risk youth. Tickets are $20–$30.
