Adapted from Alison Bechdel’s groundbreaking graphic novel, Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
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 at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
FUN HOME is the winner of five 2015 Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score (Jeanine Tesori & Lisa Kron) and Best Book (Lisa Kron) and a Finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
“A rare beauty, extraordinary and heart-gripping.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Wondrous… Tesori and Kron’s light touch lets the work soar to sky limits. It shifts remarkably between light and shade, sweet and aching moments, haunting dissonance and perfect harmony.” – The Guardian, 2021
“Fun Home is a beautiful, sensitive, insightful, innovative and heartbreaking musical, addressing themes including sexual identity, family, memory, truth and lies, and suicide… The show is ingeniously structured, using a non-linear narrative that moves back and forth in time to amplify the theme of memory and the impact of our parents and family on who we become.” – Limelight, 2021
Fun Home Is presented through special arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
