Dad’s an architect. Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal. Their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens. A typical American family. Except Mom’s been battling bipolar disorder for 16 years. With Front Porch Arts Collective (Ain’t Misbehavin), we bring you the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning, energetic pop-rock musical through the lens of a Black upper middle class family. Experience this emotional powerhouse at the intersection of mental health and race, gender and class.
