ACROSS THE POND: Fun Home on Broadway
Another transfer from the hugely acclaimed Public Theatre in NY, Fun Home, is now on Broadway. The groundbreaking new musical based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir of the same name, features music by 4-time Tony Award nominee Jeanine Tesori, book and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Lisa Kron and direction by Sam Gold, and stars Tony winner Michael Cerveris and three-time Tony nominee Judy Kuhn.
Fun Home introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family – her mother, brothers and volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father – that connect with her in surprising new ways. This intimate and emotional theatrical experience is performed entirely in the round, bringing audiences closer to Alison’s story than ever before. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and already the winner of five awards for Best Musical, Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
