FUN HOME

Book and Lyrics by Lisa Kron
Music by Jeanine Tesori

Directed by Karla Hartley
GROW UP. OUT LOUD.
Every once in a while a Broadway musical comes along that surprises, moves and excites audiences in ways only a truly landmark piece of theatre can. This groundbreaking and life-affirming new musical was the event of the Broadway season, receiving raves from critics and audiences alike and garnering five Tony Awards. Based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home introduces us to Alison at three different ages. We follow her as she explores and unravels the many mysteries of her childhood in this refreshingly honest and intimate musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

“Heart-gripping and cathartic, FUN HOME occupies
the place where we all grew up”
The New York Times

Winner of 5 Tony Awards Including Best Musical
