Adapted from Alison Bechdel’s 2006 best-selling graphic memoir of the same name, Fun Home is a Tony Award-winning musical by the celebrated musical-writing duo, Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron. Alison is 9, 19, and 43, trying to untangle her childhood, her family, herself.

With a soaring and dynamic score, Fun Home is, in turn, funny and heartbreaking; a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your past and your parents through grown-up eyes.

Awards and Accolades
- Winner of five 2015 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book
- Winner of two 2014 Obie Awards, including Outstanding Musical
- Finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
- Nominee for three 2019 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical

“A rare beauty, extraordinary and heart-gripping.” - Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Wondrous… Tesori and Kron’s light touch lets the work soar to sky limits. It shifts remarkably between light and shade, sweet and aching moments, haunting dissonance and perfect harmony.” – The Guardian, 2021

“Fun Home is a beautiful, sensitive, insightful, innovative and heartbreaking musical, addressing themes including sexual identity, family, memory, truth and lies, and suicide… The show is ingeniously structured, using a non-linear narrative that moves back and forth in time to amplify the theme of memory and the impact of our parents and family on who we become.” – Limelight, 2021

“Five Stars. Fun Home has enormous intelligence and sensitivity. It's not your ordinary Broadway musical, because it is extraordinary.” – Time Out New York
