Book and Lyrics by Lisa Kron, Music by Jeanine Tesori

Based on the best-selling graphic novel of the same name, Fun Home introduces us to author Alison Bechdel at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family. As we look through her eyes we witness her journey to self-acceptance and 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, Fun Home is “a blazingly original heartbreaker and a nonstop treasure of invention”
