This Off Broadway classic concerns Hanna O'Brien, a half Jewish, half Irish 42nd Street ticket taker who spends most of her spare time relaxing over a breeze hole in a Coney Island funhouse; a muscular young narcissist who spends his time in the funhouse mirror maze; Hanna's bald sister, Sophie, an Avon Lady Hanna hasn't seen for twenty years, and a carnival barker complete with flashing lights and a mid way. Of course, Eyen's Fun House is really an American Wax Museum, filled with frustration more than sadness, and it brilliantly exposes the anxiety and the half madness of the age.
"A very evocative play... shabby, sleazy, but defiant. The dog eared reality of its fantasy and its sense of wasted freak show lives in a crumbling, neon lit sideshow give the play an aftertaste and a validity." - The New York Times
