Why See Fun Home?

The smash-hit award-sweeping modern musical

The musical that swept the board with every major theater award going, the black comedy musical based on Alison Bechdel's acclaimed graphic novel heads to the Mirvish next spring as part of it's 2017/18 Broadway season! An emotionally charged and poignant family drama, Fun Home is a semi-autobiographic account of Bechdel's upbringing in a funeral home, later coming out as gay and the suicide of her domineering father, with the effects on her family very much palpable and touching.

An inventively staged patchwork of memories and conversations taking place over three different time periods, the show was adapted to the stage by Lisa Kron (Voyage to Lesbos) and is worked seamlessly together with a remarkable, Seventies-inflected score from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie). It was nominated for an astounding twelve Tony Awards, and won five, including Best Musical and Best Original Score.

What is Fun Home About?

Alison Bechdel looks back through three separate periods of her life, a jumble of memories that always seem to center on her controlling father Bruce, who was prone to violent mood swings and bouts of depression. Her father killed himself soon after Alison came out during college, and it's later revealed that he himself was gay, but had never been able to come out of the closet. As she reconstructs their relationship in her mind, Alison wonders what part her revelation played in his death.
