Easily the best theatre score in a decade.

Why See Fun Home?

Winner of Five Tony Awards

Based on the graphic novel by Allison Bechdel, Fun Home is an emotionally adept drama that stands as one of great achievements of modern Broadway. The winner of five Tony awards, this formally daring musical collects together a patchwork of memories and scenes exploring Allsion Bechdel's complicated relationship with her closeted father Bruce over three different time periods. A wonderful Seventies-inspired score from Jeanine Tesori soundtracks this portrait of the modern American family.

Fun Home debuted on Broadway in 2015, and proved an instant hit with critics and audiences alike, eventually winning five Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. This Victory Garden Theater production is directed by Gary Griffin (The Color Purple).
