Descendants of American Southerners wearing Confederate-era uniforms pose for pictures as they attend a party to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the end of the American Civil War in Santa Barbara d'Oeste, Brazil, Sunday, April 26, 2015. For many of the residents of Santa Barbara d’Oeste and neighboring Americana, in Brazil’s southeastern Sao Paulo state, having Confederate ancestry is a point of pride and is celebrated in high style at the annual “Festa dos Confederados,” or “Confederates Party” in Portuguese. (AP Photo/Andre Penner)SANTA BARBARA D'OESTE, Brazil (AP) — It had all the trappings of a down-home country fair somewhere well below the Mason-Dixon line: Lynyrd Skynyrd medleys, mile-long lines for fried chicken, barbeque and draft beer, and a plethora of Confederate flags emblazoning everything from belt buckles to motorcycle vests to trucker caps.

"Fun Home," with a book and lyrics by Lisa Kron and music by Jeanine Tesori, played for four months at the off-Broadway Public Theater last year. It's been adapted from Alison Bechdel's graphic memoir about growing up in a funeral home with a closeted gay dad. (Joan Marcus via AP)NEW YORK (AP) — Will the list include a musical set in a funeral home of all places? Or one set in Paris?
