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 The Front Porch (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.
