Music by Jeanine Tesori
Book and Lyrics by Lisa Kron
Based on the Alison Bechdel book
Directed by Sam Gold
October 17-November 4
Family life drawn to scale.
From Jeanine Tesori, four-time Tony Award®-nominated composer of Caroline, or Change; Shrek the Musical; and Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Lisa Kron, Tony-nominated author of Well and 2.5 Minute Ride, comes an original new musical about fathers, daughters, cartoons, caskets, and love. Based on Alison Bechdel’s acclaimed graphic novel and set in the family business, Bechdel Funeral Home, FUN HOME charts Alison's quest to come to terms with her father's life and death by painstakingly reconstructing their shared but unspoken bond. Surprising, funny, ultimately deeply moving, FUN HOME is an exciting world-premiere musical from some of New York’s brightest theatrical talents.
FUN HOME will be presented as part of the 2012-2013 Public Lab Season.
