FUN HOME is the most awarded and acclaimed musical of 2015, winning 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical. When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. FUN HOME is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, FUN HOME features music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by Lisa Kron. The New York Times calls it, “THE BEST NEW MUSICAL TO OPEN ON BROADWAY.” The Opening Night of FUN HOME is the first international production in Manila this November for a limited run of 18 performances only, starring Tony-Award winner, Lea Salonga opposite Broadway actor Eric Kunze.

BWW Review: FUN HOME at Iowa Stage Theatre
by Denise Forney - Sep 28, 2018

The dearly departed were well cared for at the Bechdel funeral home in small town Pennsylvania. But the same cannot be said of the Bechdel family themselves. This family shows several signs of trauma, especially the haunted Alison, who struggles with her past and the man who raised her. So it goes in 'Fun Home,' the achingly beautiful music that kicks off the second season for Iowa Stage Theatre. This show runs September 28 - October 14, 2018 at the Kum & Go Theatre in Des Moines.
