Finally an extraordinary musical that is high on substance and heart as well as entertainment value! 2015's Tony Winning Best Musical Fun Home is based on Alison Bechdel's graphic novel Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic.

Cartoonist Alison (Kate Shindle) is trying to draw her father Bruce (Robert Petkoff) and to understand why he committed suicide. Currently onstage at the Ahamsnon Theatre through April 1, Fun Home with its emotionally engaging book by Lisa Kron and curiously vibrant music score by Jeanine Tesori, boasts seamless direction from Sam Gold and a wonderfully sensitive cast.  (more...)

BWW Review: Amazing FUN HOME at the Fox TheatreBWW Review: Amazing FUN HOME at the Fox Theatre
by Chris Gibson - Nov 21, 2016

I was book shopping a while back and stumbled across the graphic novel FUN HOME by Alison Bechdel. I sat down and read through it, appreciating Bechdel's artistic style, but also thoroughly engaged in the glimpses into her life that filled the pages. The musical version (music by Jeanine Tesori, with book and lyrics by Lisa Kron) definitely captures the essence of Bechdel's work, and that's really important when something is adapted for the stage. The current touring production of this show is playing at the Fox Theatre and I highly recommend this 2015 Tony Award winner. (more...)
