2018-19 Season

Fun Home

music by Jeanine Tesori

lyrics & book by Lisa Kron

based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel

 

Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Musical!


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.

Features language, sexuality and LGBTQ+ themes.
