Not Just a New Musical. A New Kind of Musical.
including BEST BOOK, BEST SCORE, and BEST MUSICAL!
Welcome to a musical that's about a family that is nothing like yours...and exactly like yours.
FUN HOME, based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir, introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family that connect with her in surprising new ways.
Welcome to a musical about looking back and moving forward.
This intimate and emotional theatrical experience allows us to look through Alison’s eyes as she reflects on the moments that made her who she is. As we witness her journey to self-acceptance, FUN HOME vividly “demonstrates how much our world has changed and reflects just how far we’ve come” (The Wall Street Journal).
Welcome to a musical about making sense of our parents and ourselves.
FUN HOME is a gripping portrayal of a daughter’s determination to understand and connect with her volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father. A refreshingly honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
