The 2015 Tony Award winner for Best Musical, “Fun Home” is one of the most groundbreaking musicals to emerge in years. Based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling and moving graphic memoir, “Fun Home” features music by Jeanine Tesori, book and lyrics by Lisa Kron.
When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison Bechdel dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Bechdel relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s funeral home and her growing understanding of her family. “Fun Home” is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
This production contains adult themes and language. “Fun Home” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
