Few musicals over the past decade have had as personal and emotional an impact as Fun Home, an intimate adaptation of Alison Bechdel’s memoir about her childhood in her family’s funeral home. As Alison becomes more aware of her own identity, she develops a deeper understanding of the struggles her father faced as a man incapable of being truly himself. Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Musical, Fun Home recreates the art of musical theatre as something that can capture the pain, awe, and joy of the living rooms where we grew up.
Fun Home premiered at The Public Theater in New York City on October 22, 2013, under the direction of Sam Gold. The show premiered on Broadway at Circle in the Square Theatre on April 19, 2015. Directed by Gold, the Broadway production featured Michael Cerveris, Judy Kuhn, Sydney Lucas, Beth Malone and Emily Skeggs.
