Terrific New Theatre Brings FUN HOME to Birmingham 1/24 to 2/9
Fun Home comes to Birmingham, Alabama as part of Terrific New Theatre's 33rd Season. The musical, directed by David Strickland, has an opening night set for January 24, 2019 and and a closing night set for February 9, 2019.
FUN HOME is the coming-out memoir of Alison Bechdel, an exploration of family, memory, first love, and a daughter's relationship with her father. FUN HOME was nominated for 12 Tony Awards in 2015 winning five including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, Best Leading Actor and Actress in a Musical. FUN HOME was also winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical and the Obie Award for Musical Theatre.
Starring Tam DeBolt as Alison, Megan Pecot as Medium Alison, Emma Brooke Levering as Small Alison, Caleb Clark as Bruce Bechdel, Jada Cato as Joan, Kristi Tingle Higginbotham as Helen Bechdel, Sam Oliver as Christian Bechdel, Sam Slaughter as John Bechdel, and Mark Nelson as Roy, Mark, Pete, and Bobby Jeremy.
FUN HOME is based on Alison Bechdel's witty and wistful graphic novel of the same name. Past and present blend magically as we see Alison at three different ages: as a young girl playing games in the family's funeral home, as a college student joyously discovering her sexuality as a lesbian woman and now as an adult on an extraordinary quest to discover the truth about her father's secret life.
