Based on Alison Bechdel’s witty and wistful illustrated autobiography of the same name, the Tony Award®-winning musical Fun Home ushers us inside Alison’s head — at three different ages — as she struggles to process the chain of childhood events that made her the adult she is today. Growing up in a funeral home as the closeted lesbian daughter of a father with secrets of his own was complicated. But by looking back on her family life, and remembering all the loving, silly, and even shameful moments, she learns to see her parents — and herself — for who they really are.
“Heart-gripping and cathartic, Fun Home occupies the place where we all grew up.” – The New York Times
“Fun Home is an emotional roller-coaster ride, a grippingly heartwarming story mixed with some of the most smart and joyful musical numbers … You’ll be surprised, and thrilled, and enthralled.” – The Huffington Post
