1. Pick a song from Fun Home and categorize what “type” the song it is in your opinion using the song types in the lectures. Why did you choose that type? Does this song further the plot, character, or both? Why and how? ( lectures from this and previous modules should be used as your supporting citations as well as the Musical.)
2. (answer both)
