The Broadway musical's web site states,""The producers of FUN HOME on Broadway feel that the issues and subject matter explored in "Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic" are important and worthy of discussion, especially when entering the world of higher education."

As reported on BroadwayWorld, Alison Bechdel's "Fun Home" was the subject of a recent controvery when an incoming Duke University Freshman student posted on the school's Class of 2019 Facebook page that he would skip the assigned reading "because of the graphic visual depictions of sexuality."

With music by Tony Award-winner Jeanine Tesori, a book and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Lisa Kronand direction by Tony Award-winner Sam Gold, FUN HOME opened to rave reviews at the Circle in the Square Theatre (235 West 50th Street) on Sunday, April 19, 2015, and won five 2015 Tony Awards.

Featuring a cast led by 2015 Tony Award-winner Michael Cerveris, as well as 2015 Tony Award nominees Judy Kuhn,Beth Malone, Sydney Lucas and Emily Skeggs, Fun Home also featuresRoberta Colindrez, Zell Steele Morrow,Joel Perez, Oscar Williams, Lauren Patten, Gabriella Pizzolo,Marrick Smith, Jim Stanek, and Nicole Van Giesen.

FUNHOME introduces us to Alison at three different ages, revealing memories of her uniquely dysfunctional family - her mother, brothers and volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father - that connect with her in surprising new ways. This intimate and emotional theatrical experience is performed entirely in the round, bringing audiences closer to Alison's story than ever before. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, FUN HOME is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
