Why See Fun Home?
Fun Home is a daring new musical by Tony-nominees Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron, based on the successful graphic novel of the same name by Alison Bechdel. The musical tells the story of Bechdel's childhood and her relationship with her father, examining both through the eyes of an adult and a child.
Directed by Sam Gold, the production takes a fresh and daring approach to topics of sexuality and childhood as Alison revisits her unique upbringing at the family-owned funeral home. Fun Home stars Tony-winner Michael Cerveris and Tony-nominee Judy Kuhn amongst its cast members.
