FUN HOME

Book and lyrics by Lisa Kron
Music by Jeanine Tesori

Based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel

A five-time Tony Award-winner and one of the most significant new musicals of the 21st century. When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison 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, Alison relives her unique childhood playing make-believe at the family business — the Bechdel Funeral Home. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, cathartic, and wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. Directed by Amy Herzberg; featuring Rita Harvey and Rob Sutton (Next to Normal).

Winner, Best Musical

2015 Tony Award, Obie Award, Lucille Lortel Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Off-Broadway Alliance Award, and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award.

A rare beauty, extraordinary and heart-gripping.

Stunning, deeply moving, funny, and fresh — it hooks you instantly.
