- Activism and human equality (including LGBTQ rights)
- Combating bullying
- Family dynamics
- Musicals containing spectacle and dance
- Absurd, satirical comedy a la The Book of Mormon
- Heartfelt drama a la Fun Home
Mirroring the superficial persona and genuine suffering of the closeted politician, Question 1 combines the riotous absurdity of The Book of Mormon with the true depth of Fun Home. A strikingly visual show that integrates dance into the drama, Question 1 utilizes irony, satire, playfulness and caricatures to achieve a balance between comedy, lightness, drama, and gravitas.
