Fun Home is coming to Broadway this spring with Michael Cerveris (‘Bruce Bechdel’), three time Tony® Award nominee Judy Kuhn (‘Helen Bechdel’), Beth Malone (‘Alison’), Obie Award-winner Sydney Lucas (‘Small Alison’), Emily Skeggs (‘Medium Alison’), reprising their roles from The Public Theater’s acclaimed production of Fun Home. Joel Perez and Roberta Colindrez will also return to the cast, with Zell Morrow and Oscar Williams joining the production as Alison’s brothers John and Christian respectively. With music by four-time Tony® Award nominee Jeanine Tesori, a book and lyrics by Tony® Award nominee Lisa Kron and direction by Drama Desk nominee Sam Gold, Fun Home will now begin preview performances at the Circle in the Square Theatre (1633 Broadway, NYC) on Friday, March 27th, with an official opening night set for Sunday, April 19th.

 
Pronounced “a beautiful, heartbreaker of a musical” by the New York Times, Fun Home is the groundbreaking new Broadway musical based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir. Rummaging through a box of her father’s stuff, the memories of Alison’s uniquely dysfunctional family – her mother, brothers, and her volatile, brilliant, enigmatic father – connect with her in surprising, powerful and revealing new ways. Named “Best Musical of the Year” by the New York Times, New York Magazine, Daily News and more, Fun Home is a refreshingly honest coming-of-age story about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

 

Fun Home opened to rave reviews at The Public Theater in October 2013, and was quickly extended four times due to popular demand. It was named Best Musical by the New York Drama Critics Circle, and received the OBIE, Lucille Lortel, Outer Critics Circle and Off Broadway Alliance Awards in the 2013-2014 season; the musical was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
