Spun from a graphic memoir of literary genius, "Fun Home" clears a path of originality for the American musical.

LA Times

Why See Fun Home?

Winner of Five Tony Awards

American Theatre Company present their staging of a true modern Broadway classic. Arriving on the Great White Way a year before Hamilton, Fun Home breathed new life into the artform, crafting an intimate and powerful family drama that may lack the bluster of its snazzier contemporaries but packs a lot more originality and wit. It's the story of writer Alison Bechdel and her difficult relationship with her sexuality and her domineering father Bruce, and boasts a tremendous Seventies-inflected score from Lisa Kron & Jeanine Tresori.

Debuting on Broadway in 2015, Fun Home was an instant hit with audiences and critics alike, and picked up five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Book and Score.

What is Fun Home About?

A patchwork of flashback and memories, Fun Home switches backwards and forwards through three separate periods of Alison Bechdel's life. It's a portrait of her growing sense of her own sexuality, and her strained relationship with her father Bruce, a controlling figure who found it hard to relate to his children. Following Bruce's suicide, and the revelation that he himself had been a closeted gay man his whole life, Alison re-examines their father/daughter bond, and wonders how much her coming out in college affected him.
