Story

for Fun Home

One of the most groundbreaking productions ever to hit Broadway, Fun Home is the winner of five 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home features music by Jeanine Tesori, book and lyrics by Lisa Kron and direction by Sam Gold, whose work on this production earned them Tony Awards for Best Score, Best Book and Best Direction.

Fun Home introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family – her mother, brothers and volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father – that connect with her in surprising new ways. This intimate and emotional theatrical experience is performed entirely in the round, bringing audiences closer to Alison’s story than ever before. A refreshingly honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, Fun Home is “a blazingly original heartbreaker and a nonstop treasure of invention

Reviews

for Fun Home

A fresh musical that hooks you instantly with its honesty and beauty. Few shows are as moving, relatable and funny.

Review by Mark Kennedy from Associated Press

This show is breaking new ground and it succeeds because it strikes at something so honest. Its material has been mined for universal truths about love, acceptance and compassion. 'Fun Home' demonstrates how much our world has changed and reflects just how far we’ve come.

Review by Eric Sasson from The Wall Street Journal

A rare beauty that pumps oxygenating fresh air into Broadway. This impeccably shaded portrait of a girl and her father tries to solve the classic mystery: Who are these strange people who made me? I can’t think of a recent musical — or play, for that matter — that has done a better job at finding theatrical expression for the wayward dynamics of remembering. Heart-gripping and cathartic, 'Fun Home' occupies the place where we all grew up, and will never be able to leave. We're home.
