When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Directed by Artistic Director Josh Short (SPRING AWAKENING) with musical direction by Tom Chace, FUN HOME is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
"FIVE STARS. Fun Home has enormous intelligence and sensitivity. It's not your ordinary Broadway musical, because it is extraordinary." - TIME OUT NEW YORK
