Winner of multiple 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book of a Musical, and winner of a New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, Obie Award, Lucille Lortel Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, and Off-Broadway Alliance Award.
Fun Home is an original, refreshingly honest musical punctuated with an innovative score that frames the curiosity of childhood and the complexities of family. Alison’s father was many things: a historical preservationist, a funeral home director, a distant parent, and a closeted gay man. In the struggle to understand her father, while also dealing with her own budding sexuality, Alison reveals memories of her life at three different ages. This Tony Award–winning musical, based on the groundbreaking, best-selling graphic memoir, will take audiences on a heartrending and fiercely funny journey.
