Fun Home Cast
Kate Fahrner is elated to be back on the stage. The thrill of stepping onto the Fulton stage, after having been unable to work since the closing of Kinky Boots from the pandemic, is more than can be expressed in words. Thank you so much for being here in the audience and for trusting us to bring live theater to you in a safe way. A forced break away from the stage has brought into focus how important theater is to me and I am so delighted that my first step back on stage is in this theater in front of this audience. Thank you. Fulton: Kinky Boots (Lauren), Blackbird (Una), Mousetrap (Miss Casewell), Elf (Jovie). Broadway, National Tours and many other Regional Theaters.
