BWW Previews: Tony Award Winning Musical FUN HOME to be Performed for the First Time in Singapore by Pangdemonium!
To round off their 2017 Season, Pangdemonium will stage the Singapore Premiere of the groundbreaking musical FUN HOME, the musical based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir.
Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Score and Best Book- the piece interacts with Bechdel at three different ages. The haunting melodies of Jeanine Tesori and poetic lyrics of Lisa Kron set a foundation for this musical. Moving between past and present, it reveals Bechdel's unique childhood and we witness the life-changing events that spark her sexual awakening. Along with her journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance, we uncover the secrets that have tormented her father and defined her life and how she handles her uniquely dysfunctional family. FUN HOME is a gripping portrayal of a daughter's determination to connect with her volatile, brilliant father whose temperament and secrets have defined her family and her life.
"FUN HOME is an exhilarating, heart wrenching, and moving musical which will resonate with anyone who has ever felt 'different', even within their own family. The story - based on real life experiences of Alison Bechdel - is a roller-coaster of comedy and tragedy, and the songs are sublimely beautiful. Be prepared for a truly unique and unforgettable musical theatre experience." said Adrian and Tracie Pang, Artistic Directors of Pangdemonium.
FUN HOME is directed by Tracie Pang, starring: Adrian Pang, Monique Wilson, Nikki Muller, Elena Wang, Benjamin Kheng, Gail Belmonte, Chloe Choo, Elly Gaskell, Aria Zhang, Damien Weber and Bjorn Haakenson.
