Family Ties

by Daniel Goldstein
based on the CBS television series
directed by Kevin Moore

June 1 – 25, 2017

One of the most beloved television families of the 1980s takes to the stage. Twenty years have passed and Alex P. Keaton, now running for Congress, returns to his parents’ Columbus home with his sisters, Mallory and Jennifer, who are parents of their own. Gathered together once again, they relive some of the most important moments from their childhood - the growing pains, heartbreaks and reconciliations - with fondness and appreciation for simpler times that defined a generation.

Run time: TBA
