Lima Kokua Spring Social at Manoa Valley Theatre

Lima Kokua invites you to join us for our 2018 Spring Social. Celebrate the arrival of Spring with us at Manoa Valley Theatre on Saturday, March 10th, for the Hawaii premier of the Tony Award winning musical “Fun Home,” a musical comic drama by Lisa Kron, Jeanine Tesori and Alison Bechdel.

From Manoa Valley Theatre:

“When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic artist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.”

WINNER – Best Musical – 2015 Tony Awards
WINNER – Best Musical – New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, Obie Award, Lucille Lortel Award

Join us before the show for dinner at Asia Manoa at 6:00 PM.
