Fun Home is the winner of five 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical. Inspired by Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic novel, this relatable and moving story has Alison reliving her upbringing with her brilliant and volatile father—a man whose own secrets defined the family—while discovering her own sexuality. It’s a journey marked by honesty and humor and filled with memorable songs. The New York Times says Fun Home is a “heart-gripping and cathartic” musical that delivers a deeply satisfying emotional wallop.
