by Contests - Broadway - Mar 30, 2015

Welcome to Fun Home, the groundbreaking new musical that comes to Broadway after its sold-out, critically acclaimed run at the Public Theater. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home features music by 4-time Tony AwardŽ nominee Jeanine Tesori (Violet; Caroline, or Change), book and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Lisa Kron (Well) and direction by Sam Gold (Seminar), and stars Tony winner Michael Cerveris (Sweeney Todd) and three-time Tony nominee Judy Kuhn (LES MISERABLES).
